dc.description.abstractPaucity of information about Aotearoa/New Zealand disabled women’s experiences of becoming mothers and the enablers and barriers they may face. • Overseas studies show that disabled women do encounter physical, attitudinal barriers. • Studies have also indicated that health professionals lack the knowledge and experience to provide appropriate care. • 2014 Maternity Consumer Survey found that disabled women were less satisfied overall with their maternity care in comparison to non- disabled women. Study aims 1. To investigate the experiences of women with either physical disabilities or sensory impairments in choosing whether to become mothers, including the barriers and facilitators to positive experiences of disabled motherhood; 2. To investigate the perspectives of health care professionals regarding the facilitators and barriers to providing best quality maternity and child care services for disabled women; and 3. To seek consensus on priority actions and strategies towards our overall aim of improving health outcomes for disabled women during pregnancy, childbirth and early childcare.en_NZ
