Hi I also have epilepsy and I have two beautiful daughters the only thing is your are considered high risk and also you may have a lot more ultrasounds with your pregnancy and they will make sure that the medication is good during pregnancy. Also if I may add epilepsy is most of the time hereditary so my oldest daughter who is 9 also has epilepsy.

With my second daughter I got pregnant without even trying she was truly a surprise she is now 2 my labor was fine but I did go into premature labor with her but she turned out to be a good birth weight and she is developing just fine and I also had seizures while I was pregnant with her.
