I'm a Psychology student from the Flinders University in Adelaide and I'm conducting a research study on Perfectionism and symptoms of Postnatal Depression, titled, ‘Perfectionism and the Relationship between Stressful Life Events and Postnatal Depression’.

I'm looking for mothers 18 years of age and over of a child or children up to the age of 6 months to complete a 15 minute online questionnaire.
Purpose of the study:
This project aims to gain a better understanding of the relationship between perfectionism and symptoms of postnatal depression.
  • To influence early interventions aimed to target the effects of perfectionism on symptoms of postnatal depression.
  • To contribute to the current research by providing practical benefits to professional psychologists.
