Neurologic illness and injury account for a subset of women who are pregnant with disability. The care of these women is hampered by inadequate education of health-care workers, negative attitudes toward women with disability, assumptions about the sex lives of women with disability, and structural barriers that decrease accessibility to medical care for women. Additionally, systemic barriers as well as a lack of emphasis on multidisciplinary approach expose women to inadequate care. Appropriate education, the elimination of structural barriers and negative attitudes as well as emphasis on patient centered and multidisciplinary care can help to optimize patient outcome and experience.
