#5 “Important things for a Deaf mum-to-be”

24th July, 2017

Ruth is a mum of two and she is also Deaf. She recalls the some of the troubles and frustrations that she faced during both of her pregnancy journeys and is eager to spread the word and raise awareness of what it’s currently like to use maternity services as a Deaf mum-to-be and how this could be improved. Joined by her interpreter Debbie, Ruth let us know what she thinks are the most important things for Deaf mothers to have access to during their pregnancy journey.

If like Ruth, you are a Deaf mum-to-be, or know somebody who is, and would like more information about the support available – our Community Midwife, Helen Hands and Midwife, Sajni are happy to help.
