Research Summary

Dr Jadva is a Lecturer in Reproductive Science at the Institute for Women's Health, UCL. She holds an honorary position at the Centre for Family Research, University of Cambridge. Her research examines the psychological well-being of parents and children in families created by IVF, egg donation, sperm donation and surrogacy. She has also studied the experiences of surrogates and gamete donors.  Dr Jadva is a co-investigator on a Wellcome Trust funded grant based at the Centre for Family Research. The project aims to increase understanding of new family arrangements involving non-cohabiting co-parents, transgender parents, elective single fathers, and identifiable egg donors. Other current projects include a longitudinal study of families created using surrogacy, egg donation and sperm donation and a follow-up of surrogates twenty years on.
