I had epidural no problem

I had GBS 8 years ago while pregnant with my second child. I was diagnosed when I was 10 weeks pregnant and was still very much recovering when I delivered. I had an epidural with no problems. I had a high risk OB/Gyn who was familiar with GBS as well as my anesthesiologist (sp?). The anesthesiologist hung around with me for a while after inserting the epidural just to make sure I didn’t have any wierd reactions. Perfectly normal delivery, baby, and I recovered very quickly once the baby was born. Today she is a perfectly healthy 7 year old.

Just make sure your doctors are totally aware of your situation and familiar with GBS/CIDP – so many really don’t understand what it is.

Good luck! Diana
