Pregnancy and Disability: What Bodily Autonomy Means to You

 You are invited to a virtual roundtable discussion about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum recovery as they relate to disability rights. In this event, featured participants from New York State and across the country will share their personal stories about bodily autonomy, birth, postpartum, and raising children as a person with a disability. DRNY wants to learn how we can best support the disability community on these topics so that people can make their own decisions about what happens to their bodies. 

We invite you to share your own personal story and to join this safe space to discuss what bodily autonomy means for people with disabilities today. This presentation will not be recorded.

WHEN: October 17, 2023 @ 4:00pm ET


The event is free of charge, but registration is required. 

Closed captions and ASL interpretation will be provided. For other accommodations, please email
