I would like any information about healthy pregnancies/births to women with pernicious anemia, as I am interested in having another baby.

My B12 deficiency is caused by the fact that my body does not produce the intrinsic factor. I have monthly injections of B12 after being diagnosed last year at the age of 34. Apparently this is uncommon for someone under the age of 40 and the average age of diagnosis is 60.

Unfortunately this condition was not picked up until my beautiful baby boy was 5 months old after I was brainwashed into breastfeeding him. At nearly 20 months old he is developmentally delayed. My husband and I were devastated to be told last year that our baby would always have learning difficulties. If I had bottle fed him, none of this would have happened. We are pursuing legal advice to sue for medical negligence and are finally starting to come to terms with this unfortunate situation.

BJ is the absolute love of our lives and I feel ready to have another baby as we had planned. This time last year, I was consumed by grief and guilt and just wanted to die, but the human spirit is an amazing thing, along with the support of loved ones.

I'm trying to contact Lisa or Roberta, after reading their messages. Roberta said she knew of someone like myself who had pernicious anemia and also breastfed their baby.

Thank you.

I was diagnosed very yound also and found to be B-12 deficient long before diagnosed, my daughter is borderline B-12 deficient and her pregnancy went well and she also breastfed, I don't think having children or breastfeeding comes into play with this condition. Go ahead and have your baby.
