reflex anoxic seizures and pregnancy?

im 21 years old and 11 weeks pregnant with my first child

I have suffered from Reflex anoxic seizures since i was 18 months old,

They are triggered by anxiety, needles, pain

Now that i am pregnant i am unsure if i will be able to give birth due to pain causing seizures,

I havent seen the consultant as of yet, i have been to the midwife but shes never heard of my siezures as they are quite rare.

Has anyone with ras, been pregnant and had a vaginal delivery?

Do u think that c section would be best for mother and baby? x

I am 14 and I have severe reflex anoxic sezures
The way to deal with it for me is that i have a pacemaker
I'm not sure it would work for you as you are already pregnant and thats a high risk operation on a pregnant woman,
however to try and keep it to a minimum, you could go on a high-sodium diet, which increases your blood pressure as ras causes a downward spiral of blood pressure- the seizures cause low blood pressure but low blood pressure triggers more seizures.
I have found it helps me, hopefully if you can start to control it well you can give birth naturally.
