This study is designed to answer the following questions:
Does having corrective spinal fusion to treat scoliosis affect post-surgical pregnancy and delivery?
-- Are cesarean section rates the same in both affected and unaffected populations?
-- Is the use of epidural anesthesia the same in both affected and unaffeceted populations?
How do pregnancy and delivery affect radiographic outcomes and Quality of Life scores in previously fused AIS patients?
-- If so, what are the timing and duration of HRQOL changes?
