Pregnancy and KC

Postby Broderick » Sat 25 Nov 2017 11:01 am

Hi all, Just wanted to pick the brains of any females with KC who have had a baby. I'm currently pregnant (it's early days) but I had random question. I am wondering whether I will have to have a C section...I was hoping not, but logic is telling me otherwise. I know that pressure can have a big impact on the cornea, hence being advised against lifting heavy weights if you have KC. I wondered whether giving birth would have a similar impact? I can't find any research on this.....I am waiting on an appointment with my KC specialist, but could be months before I see any one, and kinda wanted to know ASAP.

I've had cross linking, which might make a difference!

Take care, all xxx F
