In brief: Neurosurgical eval

Your Obgyn will likely what you to get clearance from your Neurosurgeon who did you surgery.
The issue with some brain / Neurological conditions during pregnancy is to avoid “pushing” or in medical terms valsalva. Your neurosurgeon who know the details of your condition should be able to make a recommendation for you and your Obgyn to discuss

In brief: C-section

If you are healed up from your surgery.
There should be no contraindication to C-section. Ultimately on this one you "gotta do what you gotta do!"
