As advances in medical care continue to increase the survival of premature infants and infants, more women with chronic physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy and spina bifida are reaching their reproductive years. These women face unique challenges including access to reproductive health care, decreased mobility, and obstacles in caring for their infants. This course will explore the basic physical therapist management of women with chronic physical disability who are pregnant or parenting. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
