Spinal cord injury and parenting

In 2013 the Spinalis foundation started a project called “Mamma pappa lam – att vara förälder och ryggmärgsskadad (about being a parent living with spinal cord injury). The project runs for three years and is funded by Arvsfonden. Our aim is to increase knowledge regarding fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and parenting for people living with spinal cord injury.

The project recently launched their new website in English: www.sciparenting.com

The website will function as a base of knowledge for persons living with spinal cord injury and also companies/organizations working with care/treatment in these specific areas mentioned above.

The project is based in Malmö with Anna Oredsson and Nora Sandholdt as part-time workers on the project. Also working in the project group is Erika Nilsson located in Stockholm. They are all parents living with spinal cord injury.
