Have you given birth to your baby in the last two years?
Are you interested in taking better care of yourself as a new mum?
The MotherCare project is an initiative of researchers at The University of Queensland (Dr Koa Whittingham and Dr Amy Mitchell) and has ethics approval through The University of Queensland (2016000376). Our aim is to discover better ways to care for the psychological wellbeing of mothers, particularly in supporting mothers to cope with difficult thoughts and feelings about their childbirth and early infant feeding experiences.
What does participation involve?
Participation involves the completion of two short and anonymous online surveys (one immediately, and another four weeks after completing the first survey). The surveys will ask you questions about your own coping, childbirth, and feeding experiences (both breastfeeding and bottle feeding) and are completed online. As part of participating you will receive free-of-cost information and guided activities intended to promote your wellbeing. You will receive this information in the form of two short online videos.
Can I participate?
To participate you need to have given birth to a child within the past two years, and be aged 18 years or over.
