Lessons From Mothers With DisabilitiesBook - 2012
Taking Care, based on twenty-six interviews and other autobiographical narratives, challenges the negative stereotypes about mothers with disabilities. These women's stories tell of their successes despite the barriers they encounter from the society in which they live. Covering issues in the mothering cycle from pregnancy and birth to raising a child through adulthood, the mothers' experiences and strategies provide valuable information for other women with disabilities as well as for doctors and health and social service professionals. This book will provide a significant model for all parents.
