Having Children

Having Children

Hello,

Me and my boyfriend are thinking about having a baby in the future. I have a generalized form of epilespy that is controlled, but I will be on medicine for the remainder of my life. My doctor says I can't be on my meds while pragnaet and I guess I want to hear stories about what this has been like for other people
