Workshop 7

Workshop 7 explores how black fathers experience ante-natal sickle cell screening. It shows how fathers struggle to reconcile their preferred family relationships with the pressures of occupational class, racism, citizenship status and lack of cultural competency in care of sickle cell disorders. It proposes that the screening aim of informed reproductive choice is flawed and that people would be better served through the goal of informed reproductive care.
