1–26 titled " From Feeling Broken to Looking Beyond Broken: Palestinian Mothers’ Experiences of Having a Child With Spina Bifida" The article aimed to illuminate mothers’ lived experience of having a child with SB in Palestine. The results of this study demonstrated that This study reveals a lack of counseling and support of the mothers and families at the period of diagnosis, resulting in despair when confronted with their child’s disability. The lack of support created constant anxiety and uncertainty about their child’s health and future. Arab-Muslim mothers lived with the burden of daily stressors and challenges to caring for their child, and experienced a difficult life situation with isolation and lack of formal support from health care and society and no expectation of future relief.
