disAbility Maternity Care has been established to provide women with disabilities and service providers information to assist in supporting them to become mothers.
It is established on the premise that all women have the right to establish relationships, have consensual sex, and become mothers should they so choose.
Women with a disability experience particular disadvantage especially in relation to reproductive health and parenting. Research has shown that many health professionals know little about providing childbearing care or information to this consumer group. It is further magnified by a lack of specific maternity resources for women with disability, especially in Australia.
Evidence-based research is limited in this area, particularly in relation to the provision of pregnancy or birthing care for women with a disability. This section of the website contains information and articles to assist health professionals supporting and providing care for women with disabilities during pregnancy, birth and the early postnatal period. Each article is presented in blog format with links to further resources and information specific to each topic.
