4 Tips for Women with a Disability to Read before or during Pregnancy

A regular obstetrician-gynecologist may not be prepared to handle your pregnancy. Some obstetricians may not even be in favor of your decision to have a child. As such, it is very important to find a specialist who not only is prepared to handle pregnancies involving women with a disability, but is also supportive and positive about your decisions.
Begin your search for a good ob-gyn as soon as you can. An ob-gyn can offer valuable advice even before you conceive. Do ensure that the ob-gyn’s clinic is easily accessible by wheelchairs or mobility scooters. Examination tables and scales need to be accessible too.
At times, disability specialists may be able to refer you to a good ob-gyn. In such a case, you can be sure that both specialists will consult each other and ensure that you and your baby are fine.
When you do find a good ob-gyn, make sure that all physicians working with or under the ob-gyn are aware of your condition and specific needs.
