Bulging L4/5 disc and Labour?

Hi I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.
I have a bulging disc in my lower spine at L4/5 that is intruding into my spinal canal. My question is can I have a normal birth or would I have to have a C-section? Has anyone been in the same boat? Thanks :-)

The problems I have had are not related to my back. I had back pain in my first trimester but now I'm ok. I have just read on methods for dealing with major back pains during delivery. I have hi tolerance for pain so I have hope I will be strong.

I have 2 herniated discs (l 4&5) and I had no complications with delivery. I had a normal epidural, felt no pain and had a perfect , no complication vaginal delivery :)
