This broad-ranging research theme reflects the diverse nature of our academics’ work and investigates the many different aspects that influence maternity and motherhood in the 21st century.
Projects explore varied topics such as the experiences of migrant women, the media’s influence, the experiences of men during early labour and how healthcare professionals can better support victims of domestic abuse.
