Access Maternity

A Pip Disabled Mum Disability Inclusion Project

I’m really excited to make a start on our newest project for 2021. 

This project is so important for disability inclusion and equality, because at the moment, people with a disability face barriers others don’t face and a lot of discrimination when it comes to starting a family. 


The Pip Disabled Mum  project ‘Access to Maternity’
will see a team of volunteers with disabilities come together to:


⭐️ Provide training to health professionals 

* Disability Awareness

* Introduction to Neurodiversity 

* BSL Signs - Labour & Delivery 

* Introduction to Learning Difficulties 

* Making Adaptions to equipment

* Personal Care Plans & Reasonable Adaptions


⭐️ A Care pathway for new & expectant parents that identify as neurodiverse or having a disability on first contact with maternity services. 


⭐️ An Access Guide 

‘A Disabled Mum’s Access Guide to Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond’ 

Which will be written as a first person experience with other collaborating parents with disabilities, mental health conditions, learning difficulties, health conditions or neurodiversity. It is also set to have selections written by health professionals with a disability. 

⭐️ Inclusive Literature 

Access to Maternity, although primarily a disability inclusion project, aims to promote full inclusion regardless of gender, race or religion.
