Wed 13 April 2016 9:00 am - 4:45 pm
Thank you to all who attended last years event.
Our next conference, Policing Pregnancy: Who Should Be A Mother?, will be held on 18 May 2017 at Canterbury Christ Church University.
This one-day event, to be held at Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) on Thursday 18 May 2017, is a collaboration by British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), the Centre for Parenting Culture Studies (CPCS), Birthrights, and Engaging Sociology at CCCU.
The programme includes speakers from a range of academic disciplines – Sociology, Anthropology, History, Law, Philosophy, and Social Work – and from Third Sector organisations working with pregnant women. Sessions will explore changing ideas about pregnancy, motherhood, responsibility and risk, and the impact of these ideas on women's experience and professional services.
Sessions will include:
'Ideal pregnancies' and the new family planning
Bad bodies, bad choices? Behavioural advice and the pregnancy woman
Pregnancy surveillance and the medical profession
Breastfeeding, guilt, and ideals of good motherhood
