Hi there,

Researchers at Deakin University are investigating first time mothers’ transition to parenthood. We are inviting first-time expectant mothers who have commenced their second or third trimester of pregnancy and are over the age of 18 years to participate in this study.

What will be involved?
You will be asked to complete an online questionnaire at three time points (up to 6 months pre-birth, 3 months post birth, and 6 months post birth). The questionnaire asks about your experience of pregnancy, your perceptions of partner support, your expectations of motherhood and your mood.
The questionnaire will take approximately 40 minutes of your time at each time point. As a token of thanks, mothers will be sent a $10 electronic gift voucher for taking part in the study.

Best wishes,

Transition to Motherhood Study Team
