Barlow Syndrome

Hi,

Would having Barlow Syndrome (Floppy Mitral Valve) mean that I would have to have a c-section?
Thanks.

Nicky, I have Barlow syndrome as well and my Gynae told me that he would prefer me having a c-section because they believe that going into labour normally could damage your heart, but you don't HAVE to have a c-section. My mom has Barlow Syndrome and she had 6 kids normally. I prefered the c-section. It is all your choice.
