Surrogacy, Psychology and Health : A Critical Perspective (Paperback) (Damien W. Riggs & Clemence Due)
about this item
The inalienable right to have children is a cornerstone to western societies, and yet for many people, surrogacy remains their only option. This important new book explores this highly contested area through a critical psychology perspective, discussing the many socio-cultural issues and health concerns faced by surrogates, prospective parents and clinical providers. Including empirical research conducted by the authors with both heterosexual and homosexual couples, this is the first book to look holistically and cross-culturally at this provocative topic, and will be of interested to students and researchers within health psychology, gender studies and social work.
