Unwanted Childbearing, Health and Mother-Child Relationships

Publication Abstract

Barber, Jennifer S., William Axinn, and Arland Thornton. 1999. "Unwanted Childbearing, Health and Mother-Child Relationships." Journal of Health and Social Behavior, 40(3): 231-257.

This paper investigates the relationships among unwanted childbearing, health, and mother-child relationships. We hypothesize that unwanted childbearing affects mother-child relationships in part because of the physical and mental health consequences of unwanted childbearing.
