As a service provider, your role may be as a Disability Support Worker, a Disability Advocate or working within a non-disability Community-based organisation to provide support. You may or may not have experience in providing support for women generally during their childbearing journey. However, as a service provider, your support is integral to her journey.
Information and articles for service providers around providing care specifically for women with disabilities from pregnancy through to early motherhood are provided in this section. Each article is presented in blog format with links to further resources and information specific to each topic.
Whilst this information is a guide for you in supporting your client with a disability during maternity care, it does not replace medical or health advice from your client’s particular doctor or health practitioner.
