Did you know that every year over 1 million women are affected by nerve injuries from childbirth?
Nerve damage in the legs (lower extremities) is a serious and complicated portion of these injuries. Women leave their place of birth not being able to walk, unable to care for themselves and newborns, confused and scared. Often their doctors are unfamiliar with this childbirth injury and the new mamas are left floundering, trying to figure out how to, or if they even will, heal.
If you or a loved one has suffered from this childbirth injury, you are not alone!
This website aims to educate about nerve damage from childbirth, to provide suggestions on how to recover from it and to share how to prevent it; to provide links to further information and articles; to provide a link to a Facebook support group for moms; and to publish a blog with real life stories of women who have neuropathy from childbirth.
