What is Lived Mothering?
Lived mothering is an approach to studying reproductive health that centers mothers* while acknowledging the importance of structural factors.
In qualitative methodology we focus on the lived experience. I take this practice, apply it to mothers, and examine interpersonal, institutional, and structural contexts in which these lived experiences reside.
*Mothers are people who’s daily practice is invested in the care, nurturing, and socialization of children. Mothers can be female, male, gender nonbinary, genderqueer, or genderfluid. Mothers may or may not have a biological connection to their child(ren). Being a mother is both a practice and an identity.
