dc.description.abstractWomen of child-bearing age who are candidates for trial and possible implantation of a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) may express concerns regarding its effect on their ability to become pregnant, to maintain a pregnancy and to breastfeed. Despite the large number of SCS implanted worldwide there is a paucity of data regarding its effect on fertility and the course of the pregnancy. We describe a case of 32 year old lady in our centre who became pregnant after SCS implantation and had an uneventful pregnancy with delivery of a healthy baby which was breastfed.
