I just wanted to introduce myself. I am a Lecturer at the Open University currently doing research on the relationship between birthing experiences and early motherhood. My interim findings can be found at the following link: https://parentingandtheurbanexperience.wordpress.com/. I am also organising a series of seminars held in Camden, London with the organisation Birthrights, on 'Birthing and Motherhood. See details here http://www.birthrights.org.uk/events/. To register for seminars 2 and 3 follow this link http://www.open.ac.uk/ccig/events/birthing-motherhood-seminar-series-2. There is a blog on the Birthrights site the first seminar held in the 29th January and we will shortly be uploading an audio recording of the seminar. The next one will be on the 26th February. We would love to hear from anyone doing research in this field and who might like to present, as we have yet to confirm the line ups for seminars 4-6.
