Answer: Hi dear, First of all hats of to you for taking up this wonderful service of working for special needs children.i can understand how much patience you must be having handling them.you must be God sent angel.please donot be afraid or gradually frustrated.you are doing such a good work,and should be proud of yourself.end of the day you would feel so much satisfied.people working in other sectors might not be as satisfied as you.now coming to your getting pregnant.so you have an epileptic husband to take care.now it depends on how bad are his seizures.is it too stressful? Does he become aggressive too? Having a newborn at home with an epileptic husband ,would it be safe ? I feel getting g pregnant is not difficult.it is the list pregnancy period that you and your husband need to think about.talk to a good counsellor ,both of you can open up Infront of her and discuss all pros and cons of having a baby.donot relate your job with this.they need to be separately thought.if you find job is stress full then you might even think of changing it.but having a baby and handling an epileptic husband could be quite stressful for long time.you need to be quite strong and determined.so give a thought.its up to you.

    We have already consulted my husband's doctor about our planning of baby.He told there is ok if mother doesn't have any epilepsy.Epilepsy condition of my husband is mild and also better than past.So I will be thankful for your further advice.

Answer: Hello , If your hubby have epilepsy, you may be afraid that your kids will have epilepsy, too. However, it’s important to know the facts. The risk of passing epilepsy on to your children is usually low. Epilepsy shouldn’t be a reason not to have children. Medical testing may help people who have a known genetic form of epilepsy understand their risks.The risk for children whose father has epilepsy is only slightly higher. Most children will not inherit epilepsy from a parent, but the chance of inheriting some types of epilepsy is higher. You can also take your gynaecologist opinion on the same.
