Question Chiari in general... and pregnancy

At the beginning of the year, I had surgery to remove a pituitary tumor.. and now apparently Chiari showed on my latest MRI (5mm). Ontop of it I'm pregnant.

My OB seemed to know a lot, except at the point where she told me to see a neurologist; refusing to accept me seeing my neurosurgeon at Duke who's care I'm still under from my last surgery. I'm not hopeful that the neurologist will be very knowledgeable when it comes to this (she wasn't about the pituitary tumor which is less rare than this).

I guess my question is does anybody know any information for having Chiari when you're pregnant? I've heard c-section is the best way to go.

Honestly, any information about Chiari would be great; I'm pretty clueless besides knowing it could be the real reason for my neck/shoulder pain, constant headache, foggyness, exhaustion..
