Disability Maternity Training

Navigating the world of pregnancy and maternity can be exciting and challenging, but for those who face the reality of disability, it can add an extra layer of complexity. disAbility Maternity Care is an organisation that provides disability maternity training for health and care professionals to better support people with disabilities during pregnancy and childbirth. These disability maternity training programs are designed to prepare healthcare providers with the knowledge and skills necessary to offer inclusive and comprehensive care. At disAbility Maternity Care, we understand that finding quality information and resources for individuals with disabilities during maternity can be daunting. That’s why our training programs aim to bridge the gap in knowledge and understanding.

Our disability maternity training programs encompass a wide range of topics, including understanding the unique challenges faced by people with disabilities, adapting prenatal care to accommodate various needs, and providing effective labour and postpartum support. We equip healthcare professionals with the tools to communicate effectively with patients and their families, ensuring their preferences and concerns are heard and respected throughout the maternity journey. At disAbility Maternity Care, we are committed to advancing the field of disability maternity care by continually updating our training programs to reflect the latest research and best practices.

If you’re looking for disability maternity training that empowers healthcare professionals to provide compassionate and informed care, look no further than disAbility Maternity Care. Our disability maternity training programs are not just about acquiring theoretical knowledge but also about fostering a culture of inclusivity and sensitivity within the healthcare community. We invite you to browse our website and explore the wealth of resources and information we offer. Whether you are a healthcare provider seeking to enhance your skills or an individual with a disability navigating the journey of pregnancy and maternity, disAbility Maternity Care is here to empower you.

As parents, knowing you are not alone helps you to get through those challenging times. Sharing stories also helps us feel connected. If you would like to contribute a story, please contact us here.

disAbility Maternity Care provides information about pregnancy, birth and early parenting for parents with a disability, families and professionals.
