I am 21 years old and have been on Coumadin for 2 years to treat lupus anticoagulant syndrome, a clotting disorder. Since I am young and would like to have children, I have some specific concerns about my medication. I know without a doubt that Coumadin is very harmful to an unborn fetus so an alternative therapy would have to be used. My question is, is it safer for someone with my condition to have a C-section or a vaginal birth? Which one provides more control over possible hemmorhage?
I think it is best to get this sort of advice from your doctor/obstetrician. When you become pregnant I'm pretty sure you'll need to looked after an obstetrician due to your condition, and they should be able to give you the best advice.
Your doctor should be able to help you at the moment.
