In Social Support and Motherhood, Oakley draws on her long experience as an academic researcher and writer to develop a sociology of the research process itself, telling the story of how a research project is undertaken and what happens to both researchers and those who are researched along the way. This book focuses on an important and often overlooked topic in health services: caring and social support. Newly reissued for a contemporary audience, Social Support and Motherhood will resonate with anyone interested in the experiences of mothers, and in the relations between social research, academic knowledge, and public policy.
