Her research topic is The Maternal Health Service Nexus and Teenage Mothers: A Foucauldian Ethnographic Analysis. This research endeavours to investigate the reproductive health service nexus surrounding teen-aged mothers accessing postnatal care, including the interface between these individuals and health service providers. More specifically, the formal and informal practices that cohere around reproductive health provision, and resistance to or compliance with injunctions around reproductive health and the discourses that underpin the notion of ‘teenage motherhood’ is the focus of this study.
