Bekaert, S. 'Losing' a pregnancy: Incentive toward rapid repeat pregnancy?. Paper presented at the 4th annual doctoral reserach conference, 12 April 2016, City University London.


Teenaged pregnancy: losing a pregnancy, an incentive toward rapid repeat pregnancy?

Aims: to explore the influencing factors on pregnancy decision-making in relation to becoming a mother soon after an abortion whilst in the teenage years. To consider these factors in relation to the legacy of the Teenaged Pregnancy Strategy (SEU 1999) and societal expectations for motherhood and childhood. To trouble these normalised expectations for motherhood and childhood in relation to a 'lost' pregnancy (Clarke 2002) and a situated context of poverty and violence.
