I'm 36 weeks with my first and since 25 weeks I've been complaining about severe pains in my lower back, ribs and legs. And my legs rarely hold me up, they simply feel too weak All of the midwifes and doctors said "ah it's just pregnancy pain" I refused to believe them as it is absolutely excruciating. I went to a private doctor to ask them what they thought and they said immediately it sounds like a very severe case of sciatica. I now have a consultation on Wednesday about an allergy of mine and to monitor the seriousness of this. Since telling my midwife about what was concluded she said I may not be allowed a natural birth and may have to have a c section due to the complications myself and the baby will then be at risk of Has anyone else suffered a severe case of sciatica and been denied a natural birth?
