Digital pregnancy & Digital birth

"My research is looking into a corpus of digital materials and their associated metadata as life evolves in relation to the significant life transition of becoming a parent"

My research is looking into a corpus of digital materials and their associated metadata generated as life evolves in relation to the significant life transition of becoming a parent across four strands- 'personal', 'social', 'organizational' and 'environmental'.

It examines individual pregnancy experience and the way in which people interact with these digital materials in seeking of novel ways to exploit these digital materials for both functional purposes and contextual explorations.
