As said my family has many cases of AMC and as far as I know most births were normal vaginal deliveres, not induced, not early. All were more or less normal.
A few deliveries ended in a c-section because the babies were huge (about 5 kilo) but all in all the % of those births are less than the non-amc-ones that end in c-section for the same reasons.
In the cases of c-section in my family (where the mother has amc) it was because the birth canal wasn't big enough to handle such big babies, so amc or not it would have ended in c-section.
Maybe I should also say that my family isn't affected hugely by amc, or rather we have it all over our bodies but it's all the little things that make it affect us. Eg. we have stif or missing joints in our fingers and feet. But we have joints all over that have limites range of motion (shoulders, elbows, wrists hips, kness ancles, neck and back) so we hardly have one joint on our body that has full range of motion. This explaination to tell you that it all depends on where and how you are affected by AMC and if that prevents you of giving birth vaginally. If there's a change I'd say go for it.
Best of luck

Subject: [Adults AMC] Re: I need feedback, please!!! I'm 9 months pregnant and I have Arthrogyposis
My OB wanted me to ask a few questions about the vaginal deliveries.
1. Were they induced?
2. Were they induced early?
3. How big were the babies?
4. Did they need any assistance such as a vacuum or forceps?
Thank you for your help, again.
