Disabled mum seeking pram recomendations

*PRAM RECOMMENDATION*

I have very recently become a monoplegic, I have an almost two year old and I’m due my next child in March. I’m having trouble finding a suitable pram, either double or single that I can easily use. Any U.K. recommendations for a one handed pram? It needs to have one handle as I can’t control them otherwise. I’ve been to see a few that are one hand fold but have two hand seat removal and 5 point buckles which are just impossible at this point for me to use. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated as it seems trolling the internet is just getting me nowhere as they don’t all list buckle types and seat components.

    Hi @eilidhmarie and thank you for your post.

    I have done some research and have found that the 'baby jogger city mini' pushchair has been recommended for being easy to control with one hand and can be folded with one hand also. 

    I hope this helps.

    Hi @eilidhmarie,

    Congratulations on your pregnancy and thank you for posting - welcome to the Scope Online Community site!

    I have seen the above mentioned pram recommended and also the '4Moms Origami' pram recommended too (but with mixed reviews in all honesty). I have also seen charities like Remap that can help with adaptations if that would be of help.

    I hope this has been of help to you! :smile:

    Have you tried Craigslist? I just bought a baby monitor from there. Or what about a shop for expectant moms like Mothercare? https://www.mothercare.com/pushchairs/prams-and-pushchairs/
