Hi!
Cerebral palsy does have some genetic components according to latest research. Hence, you need roper genetic counseling. Women with CP do carry full term pregnancies and do give birth to normal babies. However, this needs to be closely monitored by an Obs and Gyn specializing in such cases.
Take care!

First off, congrats on the pregnancy! How are you feeling?

Yes, CP is not hereditary and your baby should be born healthy and well!

I would like to ask you, how is the pregnancy going thus far? At 12 weeks, are you showing yet? Do you have any ataxia? How is your body dealing with the added weight of the baby?
