This 25 minute video offers a guide for healthcare professionals who encounter women with spinal cord injury who have concerns about having a safe and successful pregnancy. It features UAB Spinal Cord Injury Model System experts in the fields of physiatry, nursing, and occupational therapy. And it features an obstetrician who has not had specific training for women with spinal cord injury who are pregnant. None the less, he successfully managed one woman’s journey through two pregnancies, who also shares her pregnancy experiences as a woman with a SCI.
