Seizure during pregnancy and delivery most likely is due to rise in blood pressure. If the CT scan and EEG are normal then there could be ni other reason for the seizure but possibly rise in BP only. Doctors advice on next pregnancy is correct as there is chance of recurrence of similar seizure in next pregnancy to as high as 25 % so better to avoid next pregnancy.
