Women with cerebral palsy face many challenges.

Finding adequate healthcare shouldn't be one of them. The Cerebral Palsy Foundation is committed to improving the health of women with physical disabilities through our Women's Health Initiative. Learn more from our experts and from women themselves.

Women can find support and empowerment from learning from each other and hearing their stories of strength, successes, even mistakes made or failures. In this section we highlight a variety of women's stories and perspectives for women, young and old, and those raising girls growing up with cerebral palsy.

Understanding Birth Control options, Pregnancy, and Child Birth with cerebral palsy can feel overwhelming and often times very much alone. Check here for stories and support.

Little is known about pregnancy rates in women with disabilities in general and even less is known about women with child-onset disabilities such as cerebral palsy (CP).
