Your avm sounds fairly extensive, and the doctors who defined the extent of the avm are better able to answer that question. Giving birth yourself is only one way of being a parent. I wish you well ...Read more

One way to remove aluminum out of the body is to consume silicon rich water. ...Read more

Could be: I've had newborns with as many as 5 neck loops or up to 3 true knots in the umbilical cord all grow up & do fine. In both cases monitoring during labor produced heart rate changes that led to a cesarean delivery. Kids without stress patterns during labor have a loose loop & are unlikely to have problems. Sometimes the wrap prevents baby from delivering normally, holding them back like a yoyo. ...Read more
