The Challenge

We conduct research into diverse areas of reproductive, maternal and sexual health relevant to contemporary clinical practice and service development.

Our work focuses on the psychosocial aspects of nationally- and internationally-relevant areas such as perinatal mental health, teenage pregnancy, and sexuality in healthcare and maternity care.

The Approach

We have strong links with the NHS and attract research funding from a range of National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and charity streams around maternal and reproductive health.

Couple

OUR AIMS

  • To undertake research and scholarly activity relevant to contemporary clinical practice and service development in the broad areas of perinatal mental health, teenage pregnancy and maternity care
  • To draw up a three year development plan which takes into account the strategic priorities and specific performance targets of the faculty's research strategy, and the development needs of its members
