Living with Spina Bifida

Hi everyone,

I just found this awesome community and decided after joining to introduce myself.

My name is Stacey. I was born with Spina Bifida and have what I've been told by doctors, a mild form of it. I had a back surgery when I was first born and one other surgery when I was eight to fix some muscle placement in my legs to help me walk better. I wear leg braces but can walk really well without them and have never used a wheelchair for mobility.

I'm 28 and have been married for two years now. I have a job that requires me to stand on my feet a lot, which does tire me out a great deal but so far I haven't had any major issues with it.

My husband and I are starting to think about having a baby and naturally I have so many questions. I've searched the internet a million times and have found nothing about women with Spina Bifida and pregnancy. Does anyone have any websites or blogs to share? So far this community is the first place I've seen it discussed anywhere and I'm so grateful!
