Disability, Pregnancy and Parenthood International
As a former editor of Disability, Pregnancy and Parenthood International journal, I interviewed a range of disabled parents. Sample interviews:
Labour of love, the power of faith – Liz Jackson (of ’Secret Millionaire’ fame) talks to Shanta Everington about her experience of parenting with a visual impairment, the importance of problem-solving, having confidence in oneself and knowing when to ask for help.
Challenging the doubters – Louise Medus, author of No Hand To Hold & No Legs To Dance On – a Thalidomide survivor’s story (Accent Press) talks to Shanta Everington about her experiences of parenting.
Fatherhood and schizophrenia – Russell Hine talks to Shanta Everington about being diagnosed with schizophrenia after the birth of his son.
