1.Can a Doctor deny service for a woman with epilepsy for preconception?

2. Does epilepsy (off medication) have birth defects?

3.Can epilepsy or anti-convulsants cause infertility??

4. Is epilepsy hereditary??..i have heard yes and no opinions from non-epileptic ppl, and i need to jus see if anything is true?

5. only based on a rumor i it true that the hospital or a doctor can rule u An unfit parent for being epileptic and take away the baby, or deny help?..
