Hello! There was a thread on the old TalkStroke just a few days ago with a pregnant stroke survivor who was worried about coping with a baby. I've just read a tweet by @Susan_Polland who said that changing a nappy one handed was impressive. I've told her about the thread on TalkStroke and asked if she can post a video - we need Mum's and Tots stroke survivors groups, even if they're on Skype!

Hi! Finally worked out how to get into this forum...I think! My stroke happened 5 days after my baby was born. He will be 7 this year. Please get in touch if you want to know anything about my journey, it might help you. PS I'm also a midwife, haven't been able to deliver babies in a while but I'm still able to look after mums to be x
