Description of Mothers with Visual Impairments Who Are Raising Young Children

Abstract: Interviews with 42 visually impaired mothers found no significant relationship between the degree of visual impairment and the amount of advance preparation for child care tasks, trial- and-error learning, or initial reactions to the mothers'; pregnancy. The totally blind mothers thought that more information on childbirth and parenting was available than did the mothers with some residual vision. The mothers'; key concerns were their children';s safety, the extra time needed to accommodate the impairment, transportation, and handling the reactions of others.
