Body Mapping: to explore the embodied experiences of contraceptive methods and family planning with women in South Africa

Abstract:

In this booklet we share some of the body mapping images and stories which formed part of a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funded study titled: A multidimensional approach to inform family planning needs, preferences and behaviours amongst women in South Africa. The body mapping images and visual stories provide an innovative and participatory research method to uncover women’s lived and embodied experiences of their reproductive systems including reproduction, fertility, conception, contraception and family planning. The booklet is intended for policy makers, health care providers, researchers, academics and community and non- governmental organisations working in the sexual and reproductive health arena.
