“Nerve Damage from Childbirth” was created by Reagan Smith Smutny, a mom who suffered bilateral femoral neuropathy in the fall of 2015 while delivering her first child. To read her full story, find it here on the blog.
Previous to her injury, Reagan graduated from Georgetown University with a B.S. in international business and marketing and from the University of Southern California with a Master in Communication Management. She owned and operated an event design company. After getting injured, she had to take time off of work, and later decided to put her out-of-home career on hold to concentrate on being a mommy. While she has no medical training, she hopes her extensive research on the topic of nerve damage from childbirth affecting the ability to walk will help other moms, partners, and family members going through a similar journey, as well as provide educational information to nurses, doctors, midwives, doulas, and other personnel involved in labor and delivery.
