Hi, my name is Gemstr!

I have cerebral palsy and I have just found out I am pregnant. 10 weeks I have been wishing to get pregnant for so long, now that I am I don't know what to do. I am worrying about how I will manage with my baby and a disability I have a very supportive husband who is brilliant but I worry about how I will cope. I walk with two sticks and have limited balance. Has anybody been in the same situation and have any advice?

    Hi Gemstr,
    Welcome to the Scope online community!
    I don't have any relevant experience to share with you unfortunately but hopefully you'll get some responses through your other post.
