Education

SB-You is our signature online education program for, about, and by adults with Spina Bifida. The webinar sessions are free of charge and can be viewed live on the day of the session, or anytime by accessing our SB-You session archive (see below).

Topics covered by SB-You include:

  • Sexual health
  • Living Independently
  • Employment
  • Mental and emotional health

  • How to communicate with your health care provider

Did you miss Becoming a Parent with Spina Bifida? 

Many adults with Spina Bifida would like to be parents but wonder if it is possible to become pregnant, how to care for their health once they become pregnant, and how to manage parenting and living with Spina Bifida once their baby is born (not to mention once their baby becomes a rambunctious toddler!) In this session, our presenters explored the health and medical aspects of conception and managing a high-risk pregnancy, discussed how to find the right physical and emotional care during pregnancy, and revealed tips and suggestions for managing life with a baby or toddler.
