We are building our video resources for Autistic parents and those who support them. We will also be using this space to share resources from other people or organisations with their permission. Please contact us if there is anything, in particular, you would find useful. We will send out regular updates to subscribe to our website and follow our social media pages for regular updates.
Autistic Parents UK have collaborated with Dr. Aimee Grant from Swansea University, Autistic UK, MARG, Autistic Doctors UK and a truly remarkable group of Autistic parents and professionals on the "Autistic Pregnancy Birth and Beyond: your questions answered" project.
Together, we have produced over 100 insightful videos for Autistic parents and parents-to-be. These videos will be added to this page as they finish the editing process.
Pregnancy can raise many questions and there has been a lack of information available that considers Autistic experience. We will continue to work on building content on this topic and we can also support in other ways such as in group and one-to-one education, contact us for further details.
Alexis Quinn is an Autistic parent who experienced a mental health crisis due to a lack of support during her pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. In her book Autistic and Expecting, Alexis writes about her experience and the experiences of other Autistic parents. The book offers insight and practical support to Autistic parents and those who support them.
Alexis has kindly allowed us to share the Maternity Passport she created and shares in her book. There are two versions of the passport (one with fewer images) and a downloadable sheet of icons to use within the passport. The downloads are available below.
