Deakin University are currently conducting a research study through the School of Psychology to investigate women's body image experiences during pregnancy.

Pregnant women are invited to take part in a study looking at wellbeing and body image during pregnancy. Whilst considerable research has been dedicated to examining body image, further research needs to explore the personal meaning behind these experiences unique to pregnancy and how they impact on a woman’s own body image and wellbeing.

If you agree to participate, you will be sent a basic once-off questionnaire covering your demographics and will also take part in a one on one phone interview for approximately 25-35minutes. In the interview you will be asked a series of questions about your body image experiences across your pregnancy and what factors you believe to impact on these experiences. The study will form part of a Doctorate of Psychology (Clinical) research project for Miss Watson and is supervised by Dr Matthew Fuller-Tyszkiewicz and Associate Professor Helen Skouteris from Deakin University.
