DPPI has launched a series of new guides to pregnancy, birth and early baby care for visually impaired parents and the professionals supporting them.
The Having a baby pack aims to help people through the process of becoming a parent and also to assist professionals working with them in understanding how to meet the needs of this group.
There are three guides in the series:
H1. Planning, pregnancy and birth offers a wealth of information and tips for the planning and antenatal stages through to the birth of the baby.
H2. From birth onwards covers the postnatal stages, becoming a parent and caring for a new baby.
H3. Useful resources for parenthood provides information on organisations, resources and equipment which may be helpful when becoming a parent and throughout parenthood.
The guides are available in a choice of formats: print (15pt), large print (18pt), Braille, audio CD and DAISY CD.
The guides, researched by a visually impaired parent, have been developed with input from visually impaired parents and a wide range of health professionals.
It is envisaged that the resources will be used by visually impaired parents and professionals working with them.
