Re: Anyone had problems with childbirth?

From: Tobi, mom of three


I was just diagnosed with vv today, so I came to the internet to seek more information when I came across your article. I fainted at 3 months into each of my pregnancies (but didn't know what it was at that time). My husband is in the military, so we had different Drs. The Dr of my 1st daughter told me that from now on to lay down before I fell down. I went through all 3 pregnancies and all my girls were fine, I just had to remember to lay down when the symptoms happened (and make sure to eat and drink water). I hope to learn more about this as I research. The Dr also told me that it is hereditary, I talked with my mother and we believe my dad had it. The Dr is sure that my 16 year old daughter also has it, she has passed out twice (due to dehydration). God Bless,
