In 1995 my wife gave birth our oldest son, and was diagnosed with GBS within a few days, although the symptoms presented themselves for a couple of months prior to birth. In 2001 she gave birth to our second son. She was not on any medications at the time of the second pregnancy and her condition had stabilized. When we thought we wanted a second child, we met with her Neurologist, our family doctor and our OB/GYN (who also did research on his own). She had no relapses, no flare ups and permanent damage (other than what she already had).

As her husband, I was a nervous wreak. Every sneeze, cough or anything that resembled an illness, I was on the phone with doctors and constantly babying her.

This is a decision you need to make with your doctors and spouse.
