Pregnant with Vaso Vegal  & Pacemaker Anyone?

From: Pam


I've been diagnosed with vaso vagal for 9 years. I have a pacemaker because beta blockers didn't seem to work. Presently, I'm pregnant. I've had a few minor feelings of light headedness, but no fainting or seizures. I'm wondering if anyone who has this condition has had a sooth or difficult birth experience. My partner and I would very much like to have natural childbirth. Also, has anyone taken beta blockers during pregnancy? What were the results? I understand some people have their pacemeaker turned up during pregancy, what have been people's experience with this?
