For all woman, becoming a mother is a journey. It requires learning new information and skills. If you are a woman with a disability, or a partner, family member or carer for her, your journey may have added challenges.
This section contains information and articles on pregnancy, birth and early motherhood for women with disabilities and their families or carers. Each article is presented in blog format with links to further information and resources for that topic.
Whilst this information is a guide for you and your family, it does not replace medical or health advice from your particular doctor or health practitioner.
