Newcastle University Research

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.

Each session runs for about 60 minutes – they are informal and friendly and they are currently running over Zoom. And you can meet the needs of your baby during the session – feed, change and soothe as you need to.

The researchers really benefit from discussion with small groups of mums and being able to ask 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 online on:

Monday, April 24th at 1pm


To focus on:
weight and lifestyle advice during pregnancy

Researchers would like to speak to a small group of mums about a study which involves weighing pregnant women at each antenatal appointment to monitor weight gain and providing diet and healthy lifestyle advice.

The team would love your thoughts and feedback.

If you would like to take part or you are interested in finding out about future research projects, you can send me a message below.

And a huge thank you – your input is so valuable to research, it makes such a difference to researchers and each project.
