Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Research Announcement

Are you a woman with Cerebral Palsy over the age of 18?

The survey below was developed by Dr. Anne Berndl at the Accessible Care Pregnancy Clinic at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, in Toronto, Canada.

Dr. Berndl is a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist who focuses on pregnancy and physical disability. She has created this survey to address the lack of knowledge about reproductive health and pregnancy in women with CP, which may affect the care they receive or the healthcare choices they make.

This survey was created with input from women with CP, as well as the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy.

It is completely anonymous. You may skip any questions that you do not feel comfortable answering.

If you are interested, please visit the survey through the link below:
