Call for study participants: Research with Mothers with physical disabilities.

Tuesday, May 26 2015

Are you a mom with a physical disability?

Lesley Tarasoff would like to hear about the pregnancy, labour, birth and mothering experiences of physically disabled women for a study at the University of Toronto.


She is interested to hear your recommendations to improve care experiences.


She would like to speak with women 18 years of age or older who live in the province of Ontario and identify as a woman with a physical or mobility-limiting disability, and who have given birth in the last 5 years.


As a study participant, you would complete a short demographic survey and a 60 to 90 minute interview. Interviews will be audio-recorded and take place at a time and accessible location of your choosing.

In appreciation of your time and sharing your experience, you will receive $30. TTC tokens, attendant care, and childcare will be provided, if needed.*
