Post High Risk Pregency due to epilspsy

I'm 19 and this is my first pregency and I just found out that i'm a high risk for i have multiple disabilities including seizures. I was woundering if anyone has any suggestion on how to help keep my stress low. I'm also been told that the baby has spinal bifida.

I was never able to have children due to the seizures some epileptics can I was told I would have to stop my meds therefore putting my ownself at risk which would put the baby at risk.. I have been pregnant one time but lost it (I think it was my meds) anyway you just need to stay calm eat healthy listen to your doctor and you should be ok with it.. I don't have any idea of what type of seizures you have, what meds are you on?
