Health and Social Care services are failing disabled parents and their children according to new research.
The study from the University of Bedfordshire warns that disabled parents are often seen as a risk to their children rather than given support - and concludes that professionals should offer help before families reach crisis point.
Fiona Denton was diagnosed with a mental health condition before having her daughter 16 years ago.
As soon as she decided to become a mother she says she was suddenly under scrutiny
When Fiona's mental health issues meant she needed support she says she was turned away.
Fiona was just one of the parents involved in a study by the University of Bedfordshire which concluded that Health and Social Care services are failing disabled parents and their children.
The report is calling for earlier support and a change in attitude so that those who need help aren't afraid to ask.
