When i was younger i had Scoliosis and have since had an operation to fuse my spine and had rods put in. I also had another operation to remove the rods 4 years later as they were causing pain.

Because of all this i am tossing up between having a natural birth or ceasarean. I am seeing a anaesthetist to see if i can definatley have an epidural as my spine is still fused.

Has anyone else been in a similar situation? I would love to hear your thoughts.

My worst fear is going to have a natural birth only to find that they cant do an epidural and my back may cause more problems with the birth.

Cheers
