My current research project is a comparative study of Jewish women's experiences of maternity and infant care in England and Israel: 'Jewish mothers and Jewish babies: Childbearing and childrearing amongst Jewish women in England and Israel'
I have also been looking at the provision and experience of pre-school childcare in Britain during the years 1939-2010: 'Pre-school Childcare, 1939-1979'
My wider research has focused on motherhood in post-war Britain: 'Motherhood in Britain, c.1945-2000'
