Dr. Nikolaos Zacharias answered
25 years experience Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Relax.: Asthma is a common affliction of young women and is seen during pregnancy fairly frequently. Most cases tend to be mild and clinically inconsequential but some cases are more severe or even life-threatening. Consult perinatal anesthesia and maternal-fetal medicine prenatally to formulate the optimal delivery plan. Cesarean section is not necessary just because you have a history of asthma.
