Not much: Most of these are mild deformities i. Terms of degree of slip. There may be some increased back pain with a change in terms of loss of your core muscle support and center of gravity as the pregnancy progresses but it should not affect the pregnancy or birth or even the utilization of an epidural. A pregnancy harness may help as you progress with the pregnancy.

It does not: Degenerative spondylolisthesis usually is not seen before age 50. While is rarely occurs earlier, it should have no direct affect on pregnancy.
