As I have just finished studying for a degree in Communication and Media (and potentially considering studying for a Postgraduate), I wanted to broaden my research skills, which is why I applied to be a part of this project. I also thought that my experience of using platforms such as WordPress and Twitter would be beneficial to the research project as I can maintain the blog and Twitter page.
Maternity, Midwifery and Baby Event in Birmingham
Friday, July 1, 2016 – 10:00
We have been invited to give a plenary session on the topic of ‘Media and childbirth’ at this one-day conference which helps raise awareness, by talking to midwives and sharing our research.
My first post of this dedicated ‘Media & Midwifery’ WordPress site. It was established to address issues around the role and influence of the media on societal attitudes and views on pregnancy, childbirth and other issues around new mothers. This site is hosted by students and staff based at Bournemouth University (UK). The hosts include members of the Centre for Midwifery, Maternal & Perinatal Health and the Journalism & Communication Academic Group at Bournemouth University.
