You can help researchers understand the reproductive health needs and experiences of people with disabilities and how to better support their reproductive life choices. With advancements in technology, more women with disabilities can choose to have children. You will be asked by researchers at the University of Toronto to take part in an interview about your reproductive health.The interview will take 1-2 hours and be done over the phone or Zoom at a time that works for you.

  • Identify or may be labeled as having one (or more) of the following disabilities:
    – physical (e.g., cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, SCI)
    – intellectual or neurodevelopmental (e.g., autism, Down syndrome, FASD)
  • Identify as a woman, trans, or non-binary
  • Are between the ages of 18 and 44 years old
  • Live and receive health care services in Ontario

What is involved: You will share your thoughts about your reproductive health, including your thoughts on having or not having (more) children, where you get information about reproductive health, and your relationships in an interview (1-2 hours) over the phone or Zoom.

Participants will be provided with a $50 gift card upon participation.
