Today, we're chatting with both Jane Fisher from Antenatal Results and Choices and Professor Caroline Lafarge from the University of West London. Caroline is a Professor of Psychology with an interest in maternal health.
After going through her own termination, Caroline decided to focus her masters and Phd in psychology in this area of research. She has undertaken many research projects to look into how women cope with a termination for fetal abnormality and the way coping relates to women’s post-termination psychological changes. ARC has funded some of Caroline's findings, most notably in the importance of choice of method of termination (medical or surgical).
We talk about what research sets out to do, how it can help bring about change and what both Jane and Caroline have learnt from the research carried out so far.
You can find a link to a list of Caroline's publications here.
