There will undoubtedly be a more obstacles to overcome but caring for a baby with a disability is doable.
 
You will also need to start tending to their medical needs immediately. Usually a doctor will explain what needs to be done before you leave the hospital. These treatments can be expensive but there are programs that can help with the expenses, which you can ask the hospital about. You should also inquire as to whether or not your child qualifies for children’s SSI.
 
To help you as you deal with your child’s disability, support is vital. Friends and family as well as support groups are a great place to look. You can find both online and in-person support groups with parents that are going through the same things. There will be some parents who have already gone through the stage you are in that can advise you on ways to get through it. 
 
As a parent of a disabled child, you will have rough times but you will also experience moments of pure joy. You will have to stay strong not only for yourself but for your child. Don’t try to do this alone. There are people who want to help, whether they have been through the same thing or not.
