Liminality and the Transition to Motherhood For Ethnic Minority Consumers: Examining the Experiences of South Asian Mothers in the Uk

This paper examines the experiences of South Asian mothers in the UK, aiming to further our understanding of ethnic minority mothers’ experiences of liminality during the transition to motherhood. The paper examines how these mothers negotiate consumption and the norms of intensive mothering differently compared to existing consumer research.
