Researchers from the University of Toronto would like to hear about your pregnancy, labour, birth and mothering experiences.

They want to hear your recommendations to improve care experiences.

From the researchers:

We want to speak with women 18 years of age or older who live in Southwestern Ontario and identify as a woman with a physical or mobility-limiting disability, and who have given birth in the last 5 years. As a study participant, you would complete a short demographic survey and a 60 to 90 minute interview. Interviews will be audio-recorded and take place at a time and accessible location of your choosing. In appreciation of your time and sharing your experience, you will receive $30. TTC tokens, attendant care, and childcare will be provided, if needed.

Interested in participating? Want more information? Please contact Lesley Tarasoff at 416-535-8501, ext. 30589 or All correspondence will be kept confidential.
