Short description
Bringing together the most up-to-date and relevant interdisciplinary research, this book provides a resource for health professionals and students studying social work or for the health professions. This is a complete guide with a comprehensive theoretical background in the psychology of reproductive health. The book addresses the psychological impacts of reproduction, pregnancy, maternity, and birth, as well as adjustment to life after pregnancy failure, abortion, and childbirth. In addition to addressing physical events, Reproductive Health Psychology also addresses sociological contexts such as poverty, educational and economic status, age, and urban vs. rural access.
