About the Edition

This study describes the frequencies and relationships associated with pregnancy, breastfeeding and parenting among Canadian women living with physical disabilities. Responses from a mail survey completed by women with one health condition during their pregnancy, breast-feeding and parenting were analysed. Negative reactions to their pregnancy were reported by 24% of the women. The frequency and duration of breast-feeding among women with physical disabilities was similar to national population data. Multivariate analysis revealed that assistance to care for children was higher for women with personal assistance and musculoskeletal conditions, and lower for participants with households of three or more. Participants with an activity limitation worried more about dying or becoming too disabled to care for their child/ren. Those who were pain free were more likely to find the assistive devices they needed for parenting. This study provides a foundation regarding pregnancy and parenting issues faced by Canadian women living with disabilities.
