Study about how physically disabled women experience pregnancy, labour, birth, and early motherhood

Monday, February 23 2015

My name is Lesley and I am a PhD Candidate at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. I am writing to ask if you would be willing to share my new recruitment flyer ( with your networks for the study I am conducting for my PhD research about how physically disabled women experience pregnancy, labour, birth, and early motherhood.

In short, I hope to learn more about how physically disabled women experience their bodies during the perinatal period and ways to improve care experiences. I am interviewing women with a range of physical or mobility-limiting disabilities who have given birth in the last five years from a range of experiences and identities, including diverse sexual orientations, racial and ethnic backgrounds, socio-economic backgrounds, and family structures from across the the Greater Toronto Area/Southwestern Ontario (Niagara, Hamilton, Guelph, Waterloo).

Feel free to contact me should you have any questions about the study:
