I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation two years ago. Since then i had the decompression surgery but my symptoms still remain.
I am currently 30 years old and have been thinking about my future more and how eventually i would like to start a family. I've been worrying that with my health deteriorating, is it safe for me to get pregnant, let alone give birth with my Chiari still present? Coughing hurts, so what would giving birth do to me? I'm starting to think that maybe i can't and shouldn't have children. It's depressing me, overthinking it and worrying that i will never be able to have my own family.
I just wondered if there was anyone with Chiari that has had children? what was your experience? what was the pregnancy and birth like? did the child/children inherit the condition?
Any support and advice is welcome, thank you x
