Multiple Sclerosis and spinal epidurals
Is it possible to have a natural birth with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or will this exacerbate bladder problems associated with the disease? Is a spinal epidural really safe in patients with spinal cord (CNS) disease?

This would be something to discuss with an anaesthetist. My guess would be that spinal would not be a good idea.
