Hi Anon

Many women with scoliosis will go on to have very healthy pregnancies but your doctor/specialist will be able to tell you more details about your own situation - we are unable to predict how the pregnancy will progress. Make sure you see someone about your concerns.

Hi Aishi,
Thanks for your question and for joining EmpowHER.
Many women who have had scoliosis go on to have successful pregnancies (I am one of them, although my case was minor in comparison to some, with a slight curvature at the base of my spine). The question is best posed to your doctor. They can assess the likelihood of you being able to carry a fetus. For more information, check out this link:

Good luck, and let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi again, aishi!
You may want to ask your doctor. Unless your case of scoliosis is severe, you may not have any problems at all with pregnancy.
