Sara Holton has work published in the Encyclopedia of Quality of Life and Well-Being Research


SPHPM's Sara Holton has recently had an entry published in the Encyclopedia of Quality of Life and Well-Being Research. The entry entitled Childbearing Desires Among Australian Women outlines why women want to have children, what the outcomes of their childbearing has, and what expectations women have when wanting to bear children.

The entry notes that motherhood correlates with better mental health in women because having a child may give a woman a sense of meaning, broaden their social life with other mothers and mark an achievement in a woman's life.Holton also writes that women often have less children than they originally desired because of circumstances which prevent them from having more babies.

Well done Sara!
