Question
I am looking for a car seat that would enable one handed fastening, anyone know what to look at.
I take care of my grandson often and for long periods of time. I am unable to get out and about with him, on my own. This is because securing the straps on his car seat is a real problem; due to my disability I can only use one hand.

Question
Can I get any kind of help after surgery?
I am a single parent with little to no support with raising my child. I'm currently going through the process of getting my osgood schlatters disease fixed (fingers crossed) but this may require me to have invasive surgery on both knees. Which will make looking after my 3 year old a little, impossible. I'm aware that the hospital may offer me support afterwards for myself. But I'm wanting to know if there's any help out there that covers the care of my child that I won't be able to provide. This is my main concern. Or would I have to rely on family? (which I have very little left of and no one is able to take the time out of their lives to provide the help).

Services available to physically disabled women during labour/delivery
Just wondering if anyone knew any services that women with physical disabilities can use to help with safe births and maternal satisfaction, I've seen a lot for antenatal and postnatal but not a lot of services dedicated solely for labour.

Having MS and not always able to move child away
I've read about the best ways to deal with your child, which in my current case with a one year old, is to pick them up so to move them away from where they shouldn't be, which is most of the time at the moment. What can/should I say or do to me avoid having to get up and physically move him?

Help to get into work as a disabled parent
So, I'm a 26 year old disabled parent who loves my children but now they are both at school and nursery I'm desperate to get into work. I have a Lot of qualifications but nowhere will employ me because i can't walk independently, so would struggle to get to and from work and get from 'a' to 'b' in the workplace. Do any of you work and if so what do you do? I'd love an admin or reception position preferably in the field of health and social care because that's my area of qualification. Is there any way I could get practical support to get to and from work or help in the workplace? X
