Hi there. I know you posted this message quit awile ago, but I'd like to share my experiences with you. My name is Brienna. I am a 28 year old woman with Classic EDS. I am also a mother of two. My sons are 3 yrs and 6 mths old. My pregnancy and birth experiences were fine. My EDS docotor recommended a wonderful OB/GYN. Her name is Dr. Carol Schneider, she practices out of the Women's Hospital in Winnipeg. She specializes in "high risk" pregnancies. For both of my pregnancies I had a cerclage put in as a precaution. A cerclage is where your cervix gets stitched up so the chances of miscarriage/ premature labour lessened. It is done around your 13-15th week of pregnancy is painless. Around 37-38 weeks it is removed. Both births were vaginal, and with luck I had no major complications. Nothing ruptured and I had no tearing. I know that everybody is different but I just wanted you to know that it can be done! One positive aspect of being pregnant and having EDS... NO STRETCHMARKS! No seriously, if you have any questions for I'd be more than happy to share any info I have. Good Luck To You.
