This book explores the intersection between motherhood and physical disability. It is based on a study that focused on the lived experiences of women with physical disabilities, mothers and non-mothers. What meaning does motherhood have for these women? What is it like for them? What messages do they receive about themselves as women, with or without children? What barriers do they foresee and/or come across? These issues are explored from the vantage point of disabled women with and without children.
