 Megan Reuvers

Megan is a PhD candidate at the Critical Studies in Sexualities and Reproduction Research Programme. Using intersectionality as her theoretical lens, her thesis utilizes the pregnancy supportability framework, developed by Catriona Ida Macleod, to examine support (in)equities and reproductive (in)justices that may occur during pregnancy. Her study aims to operationalize the supportability framework qualitatively by analysing research participants’ narratives of pregnancy support. Photo Elicitation was used to induce the narratives and the photos were participant generated.

Before her academic career, she worked in the education NGO sector as a production manager overseeing the development of a range of education material resources which included those of: adolescent sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing; inclusive education; parenting programmes; and, the Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) Programme, which is a SADC Ministries of Education initiative, aimed at addressing health and poverty-related barriers to teaching and learning.
