Need Input On Getting Pregnant Again

I need the opinion of someone, either a doctor or someone who has been through what I have.  I got pregnant with my first child at 28.  Postpartum I had what my neurologists call a venous thrombosis or rather 3 of them.  The symptoms manifested as numbness and seizures 1 week postpartum.  I was rushed to the hospital via life flight.  I was treated there for 3 days and released.  I have no side effects from the stroke.  I am great.  I am on an aspirin regimen.  I would really like one more child.  My neurologists indicate what happened to me to be a sort of fluke.  They say I should be fine to have one more child, with heparin therapy during the pregnancy.  I would be high risk, I understand, but I just want some feedback and input.  I haven't got a very cooperative OBGYN and I need to see if it would be worthwhile to find a new one?

Thank you,

Well, if you are still here, my advice would be to find an OBGYN that specifies in high risk pregnancies. If your OB doc now is not cooperative that is not a good sign. You should not let anyone mess with your life or wellbeing. Good luck.
