I am deciding on a topic for my SW dissertation and at the moment I am swaying towards writing about parenthood for those with a disability.

I am starting by trying to get some ideas together around the topic but to help my thought process I was wondering if anybody has any interesting view points/understanding/experience which can help my thought process.

Do parents with disabilities recieve enough support?
Do they have equal opportunities?
Safeguarding/ethical issues?

It is such a big piece of work I am worried I am not thinking about the important issues regarding the topic.

Thanks! X

So I would start by thinking about the start of parenthood which is pregnancy. There is a lot of negativity around disabled people having kids and some people claim they shouldn't etc. What effect does that have on them? Why do others believe this?
Then there's the actual giving birth in which health professionals sometimes make the instant assumption that they will need a c section - you could question the health issues/benefits.
Then if they get support how do they feel/how does it affect them? Do they feel they are not as good as others because they cannot look after their child alone?
