I am a final year PhD student (and mum of two) at Leeds Met University, and I am appealing to pregnant women, expecting their "first-born" child to participate in an online survey focusing on thoughts, feelings and experiences during pregnancy. In particular we are interested in your thoughts about appearance-related aspects of pregnancy, physical experience and exercise as this is a very much under-researched area.
This research will form part of my final PhD thesis and as a thank you, upon completion, you can choose to enter into a prize draw to win £100 worth of High Street Vouchers. The survey does not have to be completed all in one go so you can return to it where you left off if you need to.
Please be reassured that all responses are completely confidential and anonymous. Any interested participant just needs to email me on:
We've had a bit of a false start when it comes to weaning. We started earlier than the recommended six months in a bid to help combat separation anxiety and relieve exclusive breastfeeding, but it was soooo slow and then a vomiting bug and reluctance for food took us right back to the beginning.
