10 Mar ‘I had six children to get pregnancy right’

Lana Grant has six children and is autistic. She wrote a book about pregnancy and birth and runs the popular Facebook group, Mums on the Spectrum. From making a baby through to the birthing process and social difficulties at the school gate, there's a lot to talk about, and Lana has been drinking-in information about it for years now. (a transcript will appear here shortly) Another of her special interests - what we used to call autistic obsessions - is puberty. She describes how autistic people dislike change and so puberty can be more stressful because of the new "lumps" which appear. Presented and produced by Emma Tracey.
