Hey hun, I have scoliosis. Have also had 2x spinal surgeries as well (though surprisingly, were to do with an accident and not the scoliosis). I'm currently TTC but also have a 5 year old daughter. Because of my surgeries (a fair amount of metal work) and also because she was frank breech presenting (so bum down, feet up) I was booked to have a c section. I had absolutely no dramas with my spine whatsoever with that pregnancy. In fact, I didn't even know about the scoliosis until a few years later. So I would suggest following your Drs advice and perhaps if sore, seeing a physio to assess whether you need a brace or support to help your spine. Wishing you all the best x

Chris - thank you for those words. Knowing that pregnancy doesn't seem to bother it more makes me feel better. Anyways, I found through x rays through a specific clinic called bone and joint. Nothing was said much more then "you aren't able to work anymore." Never had a surgery or anything of that nature. I am going to physical therapy twice a week for it and using heating pads.

Hello! I know this is an old post - but just wanted to mention that I had severe scoliosis that require fusion from t2-l3, and it hasn't impacted my fertility or birthing ability one bit. I've had 2 big baby boys born at home (with fully qualified midwives!) and the only issue I had was extra back pain at the end of my 2nd pg because baby was posterior. also, check out build and breathe pilates for scoliosis and fusion - I just found it recently and it's a game changer in pain management!!
