Hi, You shouldnt have any problems during deliver. Unless there is an obstetric reason, there shouldnt be any reason why vaginal delivery cannot be considered. Normally the type of anaesthesia is recommended by the anaesthesiologist. Epidural/spinal is commonly recommended. Whether is can be given,will depend on the skill and recommendation of the anaesthesiologist.
There shouldnt be any problems with your spine.
