On the 29th of May i gave birth to a beautiful and healthy boy, Thomas. I had an emergency c-section because i did not dilated enough and baby started show signs of the distress, but nothing related to my cronh's disease. We are doing very well, my cronh's still in remission and i hope the motherhood can change my life forever. I decided to breastfeeding him, i had advise of a few doctors in London about azathioprine and breastfeeding, which i am very happy with the support i had. smilewinkgrin

CONGRATS!! Enjoy your little guy. So happy for you.
Hoping to stay in remission after the birth of a healthy baby girl. On Pentasa during my pregnancy, went med-free 2 months to nurse (stupid), but back on Pentasa and still nursing.
