The Perceptions of Pregnancy blog, like the Researchers’ Network, aims to reach beyond boundaries and borders, and to facilitate an international and interdisciplinary conversation on pregnancy and its associated bodily and emotional experiences from the medieval to the modern. We welcome contributions from any discipline, with any geographic focus, relating to the broad field of fertility, pregnancy and childbirth from the earliest times to the present day.

Submission Guidelines

  • Pieces should be 700-900 words in length. If your piece exceeds 900 words, we reserve the right to edit or reject it.


  • Please provide three keywords related to your post.


  • All quotes, statistics or information taken from other sources must be footnoted.


  • A picture or suggested image should be submitted as a separate attachment. The image must have copyright clearance, and the source should be clearly attributed.


  • Web-links should be included where relevant.


  • Please provide a short bio (affiliation, relevant activities, publications, etc) for inclusion at the end of your piece. Ideally, we would also like to include a head-shot of the author, although we appreciate that not everybody is comfortable with this.
