Alex Dacy, a woman living with a genetic condition, has been documenting her pregnancy for the past 22 weeks in an effort to challenge stigma and dispel ableist notions surrounding disability, pregnancy, and parenthood.

Through her Instagram posts, she seeks to initiate conversations about disabled parenthood, which she believes is heavily stigmatized in society. Alex has spinal muscular atrophy type 2, a genetic condition affecting the motor neurons responsible for muscle movement. Since unexpectedly becoming pregnant, she has had to pause her treatment.
