It is rare that women with disabilities are thought of or portrayed as mothers. This book addresses that gap, exploring the lived experience of women with disabilities and their thoughts, opinions and experiences of the idea and realities of motherhood. The women whose voices fill this study, including that of the author, describe the meaning motherhood holds for them, the messages they receive about themselves as women, with or without children, their sexual identities, the barriers they foresee or come across and their ideas for the future in relation to motherhood.

Specific to the intersection of motherhood and physical disability, this book will provide valuable insight for students and researchers of disability and health, gender, family and intimacy.
