Researchers from Newcastle University and The Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust regularly work with expectant and new parents, as well as families with young children to take part in pregnancy, birth, postnatal, maternal health and child wellbeing research discussion sessions.
The sessions run a few times a year and each one lasts for about 60 minutes. They are informal and friendly sessions, which are currently running over Zoom.
The researchers really benefit from discussion and asking you some questions – your feedback and experience can have a huge impact on research projects.
I will also be there to co-facilitate the session.
The next research session is taking place on:
Monday, September 12th at 2-3pm
- A consultant obstetrician from the RVI in Newcastle is designing a study which aims to replace heparin injections with tablets for women who have a caesarean.
- The research lead wants to talk to a small group of mums about their experience of having heparin injections after a caesarean and to gather your thoughts on this study.
This will be informal 1-hour session over Zoom, with a small group of mums. And you can meet the needs of your baby during the session – feed, change and soothe as you need to.
If you would like to join, please just send me a message. You can also join the new Maternity Research Facebook Group, where I will post updates and information about research projects.
And a huge thank you – your input is so valuable to research, it makes such a difference to researchers and each project.
