I'm Ali Gibson. I suffered a spinal cord injury in 1996 at the age of 23 and am paralysed from the waist down. I met James in 2004 and we got married in 2007. Sarah was born in January 2008 and she's an angel.
When I was pregnant, I was concerned about how I would cope being a Mum with a spinal injury. There didn't seem to be much information or accounts of how other Mums have coped. Even after Sarah was born, I found it hard to imagine being able to manage once she was heavier/more mobile etc
