Health outcomes and experiences of women with disabilities in Ontario during the perinatal period


Date: May 19, 2021

Time: 12:00 PM EST



Objectives: By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the perinatal health outcomes and health care experiences of women with disabilities in Ontario;
  2. Describe the importance tailoring care for women with disabilities during the perinatal period; and
  3. Identify the roles that nurses and other perinatal health care providers may play in supporting the health of women with disabilities in the perinatal period.




Hilary K. Brown, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health & Society at the University of Toronto Scarborough, and at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. She is cross-appointed to the Temerty Faculty of Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry and is an Adjunct Scientist at Women’s College Hospital and ICES. Dr. Brown holds a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Disability & Reproductive Health. Her research program uses epidemiologic methods to examine maternal and child health and mental health across the life course, with a particular focus on populations with disabilities and chronic disease, health equity, and the social determinants of health.


Lesley A. Tarasoff, PhD, is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Health & Society at the University of Toronto Scarborough and in the Azrieli Adult Neurodevelopmental Centre at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. She works with Dr. Brown on an NIH-funded project on the perinatal health of women with disabilities in Ontario, and leads CIHR-funded research on the preconception health and reproductive life plans of women with disabilities. Primarily drawing on qualitative methodologies, her program of research aims to understand and address disparities and inequities in reproductive and perinatal health and health care experiences among often-stigmatized and marginalized populations, chiefly women with disabilities and sexual minority women.
