Honors Program Thesis (UNI Access Only)
Childbirth--Public opinion; Women college students--Attitudes;
The purpose of this project is to gather information on college-aged women’s expectations regarding their future childbirth experiences, and to ascertain possible origins of these expectations. This project should give childbirth educators and professionals in the Midwest a better idea of what viewpoints today’s young women hold about childbirth, what type of information they have, and whether their information has come from empirical sources or widely-held lay views. Few American studies have explored childbirth expectations or questioned how personal narratives and the media may have influenced women’s views about their bodies and reproductive capacities.
