3509Re: [Adults AMC] I need feedback, please!!! I'm 9 months pregnant and I have Arthrogyposis
- Jun 5, 2011AMC runs in my family, on my father side. Most births in our family have been viginal. Of the ones I know how the child was delivered I count 15 vaginal births and 2 c-sections. All of the mothers and children (in that line of the family) have AMC, at the moment my extended family counts at least 17 with AMC (and most likely two more, that we don't know since they were born out of marriage in the "good old days" when that was a big "No No" - so there are several succesful vaginal deliveries.
It all depends on which part of your body that's accefted by AMC but if your doctor says it's possible, it's possible. Don't see why it shouldn't be if she says it is.
Good luck - I hope you get to have the expeirence you would like.

Subject: [Adults AMC] I need feedback, please!!! I'm 9 months pregnant and I have Arthrogyposis
I am wanting to try a vaginal delivery and my doctor is all for letting me try. My doctor has been looking in every medical journal she can find and every case of pregnancy/delivery in mothers with Arthrogryposis ends in a c-section, but she said that doesn't mean there hasn't been a successful vaginal delivery it just means nobody recorded it because it was a success. I told her about our group and we agreed that it would be a good idea to ask all of you if you know of any successful vaginal deliveries. I have the "classic case" of AMC (hands, elbows, shoulders, hips, knees, and feet) but I'm sure you already knew that. I also have scoliosis but its not too bad. I need as much feedback as possible and as soon as possible, please. My next appointment is this Thursday unless I go into labor before then...lol. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any advise you can give me and my doctor.
