Hi, I’m Britta.
I’m doing my PhD in Brisbane, with the help of Christina Lee (my supervisor).
I’m interested in how women use pregnancy forums for information and support. In particular, I am focusing on pregnant women who smoke, and whether they use pregnancy forums to discuss questions or issues about smoking.
I am looking for women who...
o are currently pregnant
o were pregnant in the last 12 months
… and smoked while they were (are) pregnant

I tried to quit during my first pregnancy but for reasons I won't go into I took it back up but cut down to 3 a day. Second pregnancy I did the same and just cut down, both of those times I suffered tremendous guilt. Then after I lost 3 babies I went through a major health and lifestyle overhaul which had me quit smoking and I haven't touched one for 19 months and that included my last pregnancy.

Definitely not, I even held my breath when I walked past smokers! There's enough toxicity in our lives without breathing that in

Also on my phone. Technically I did with my first, I quit the day I found out I was pregnant and have never touched them again (although I got cravings a few months after she was born. I didn't want her to see me smoke though, so I stayed on the wagon).

No, but I ate a lot of junk and my mental health was suspect. No one is perfect.
