Default Re: pregnancy when having port wine stain?

I was told by over a dozen Doctors that it is NOT hereditary.
But some women can have problems during pregnancy and delivery...
Just be sure that your doctor knows the potential risks.

I had slight problems with my first pregnancy,.
Blebs,darkening,thickening,bleeding from my pores.
But,My second pregnancy was really bad.
My face started swelling really bad ,because the extra blood flow was popping some of the vessles....My doc no longer feels that another pregnancy would be safe ,because I would be extremely high risk of anurysm next time..
For me...each time worsened drasticly.

But I have spoken with women that have many children and haven't had any real problems...
each person is different I guess?
Good Luck with your pregnancy!
