Thorns and Flowers: Infertility experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic Women
This project was carried out by an interdisciplinary team of female researchers at Cardiff and Aberystwyth and set out to explore the use of an arts & drawing workshop to understand the infertility experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Women.
We were interested in understanding:
- How infertility affects the wellbeing of BME women and their relationships with partner, family and wider community;
- What are these women’s views and needs regarding infertility care;
- If arts and drawing workshops are a useful tool to investigate sensitive research topics such as infertility and overcome language and cultural barriers.
