100-01: Conceptualization of Socially-Constructed Birth Expectations
Tara Wyatt

This working paper will propose the development of a theoretical framework that can be used to examine the phenomena of Socially-Constructed Birth Expectations, which refers to the cultural, historical, and social perceptions of birth, real or imagined, for the purpose of constructing birth expectations. The integration of life course as a guiding theory and conceptual assumptions drawn from the work of Vygotsky's social constructionism seek to explain the negative psychosocial implications of a crisis during birth on the mother.
