Are you a pregnant person with a disability who would like support developing an Accessible Pregnancy Action Plan?

Our research team is working to develop a tool, which we call the Accessible Pregnancy Action Plan. This tool would help pregnant people with disabilities think about what they need during pregnancy, during birth, and after having their baby.
