Welner’s Guide to the Care of Women with DisabilitiesThe legacy of Dr. Sandra L. Welner, MD, continues with this comprehensive medical guidebook. This book is written for a medical audience, but for women with disabilities who have the means to have this book in their collection or who can share this information with their medical providers, it is an important work.


Reproductive Health and Sexuality

Enabling Romance: A Guide to Love, Sex and Relationships for People with Disabilities (and the People who Care About Them)To help you get pregnant (or just have some fun!). A book on love, sex and relationships for people with disabilities and the people who love them, by Ken Kroll and Erica Levy Klein. We’ve given copies to many of our friends as wedding gifts. The paperback version of ENABLING ROMANCE is now available from Woodbine Publishing at (800) 843-7323, or from local bookstores. We’ve sometimes been able to find it on the shelves in bookstores (though they’re not always sure how to categorize such a book), but you may have to special-order it. For a good time, see page 56!
