When your disability can be inherited genetically, does that affect your decision to parent?

For mothers Carly Myers and Debra Keenahan, who both have dwarfism, their choice to parent was questioned by medical staff and the wider community.

This is the final episode of our series, We’ve got this: Parenting with a Disability, produced by Eliza Hull, a mother who has a neurological condition, 'Charcot Marie Tooth'.
