    Hello I'm 28, diagnosed at 18 and I've had 2 kids both successful vaginal deliveries.

    With my son (now nearly 7yrs) I thought the same as you at first (scarring resulting in baby getting stuck, not healing afterwards) but my consultant knew nothing of LS and refused to even consider a C-Section so i opted for a pool birth at the birthing centre. Obviously when i arrived they knew everything about LS (from what I'd already told them!) and they said they wanted me to labour in the pool but then get out so i could be monitored for the actual delivery.

    I didn't feel that the actual birth was hindered by LS at all and healing afterwards even with stitches seemed very normal.

    2nd birth was normal bed birth which also went without a problem.

    I've had no flare ups during or after and I would say though that during both pregnancies i had my LS under control.

    I posted the story after I had my son on here so ill see if i can find it and link you to it 😃

    good luck!

    Same! I've been dealing with LS since I was a teenager, but not diagnosed until mid-20s. I've had two vaginal deliveries and neither was affected by my LS. I do have some fusing, but it didn't seem to make a difference for my second when I had more fusing than the first.
