Abstract

Sexuality, reproduction, and childbearing are essential issues for the spinal cord injured women. The medical complications, including urinary tract infections, anemia, pressure sores, sepsis, and autonomic hyperreflexia are significant in each of these areas with both physical as well as emotional ramifications. Patient and family education is of primary importance in both anticipating as well as dealing with the potentially serious consequences. A consultant knowledgeable in the problems of the spinal cord injured can be of utmost benefit especially in the labor and delivery process.
