For Pregnant Mothers

I found some wonderful advice to pregnant mothers on a very good website for the International Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.  The following questions/ideas are addressed.  Click here to explore the advice/answers.

-I am pregnant with a child with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus.  The child I am expecting has a disability, what now?

-So much emotion, such confused thoughts

-Medical Advice

-Why me, why us, why our child?

-What can you do to improve your child’s situation?

-Some doctors will propose an abortion or a termination of pregnancy.

Looking back on my own experience dealing with the pregnancy of a child with Spina Bifida, I feel that the advice given is very good.  I hope that it is helpful.  There are many parents in our support group who would like to give support to new/expecting moms out there.  Contact us (by clicking on the “Contact” tab above)!  We will be happy to talk to you personally and answer any questions you might have.
