What trials and tribulations do mothers with disabilities face and how do they adapt? What are their actual experiences? That’s the subject of a new book called Disabled Mothers.
This collection of 18 scholarly works and personal accounts from Canada, the U.S. and Australia explores and analyzes issues of parenting by mothers with a variety of physical and mental disabilities. The book also delves into pregnancy, birth, adoption, child custody, discrimination, and disability politics. Readers will be enlightened not only by the research papers, but by the real life experiences of disabled women who are raising children, and even the perspectives of these children themselves.
