Our goal is to improve care for pregnant women and birthing people with multiple long-term health conditions through research.

– On behalf of MuM-PreDiCT | http://mumpredict.org/ 

We are inviting women and birthing people to participate in an online Focus Group, if you:

–  are planning a pregnancy or have been pregnant in the last 5 years, AND

–  have 2 or more long-term physical or mental health conditions.

This includes both physical (e.g. congenital heart disease, diabetes, epilepsy) or mental health conditions (e.g. depression or anxiety).

We would like to hear your views on what researchers should measure in all studies for pregnant women and birthing people with multiple health conditions. This is to create a Core Outcome Set, which will help shape the design of future research studies.

The Focus Group will be conducted online on Zoom and will last 1.5 to 2 hours. If you have never used Zoom before, we can arrange separate sessions to talk you through how to use Zoom.

You can also bring along your partner / a family member / carer so they can also join the discussion. Your time will be reimbursed with a £25 voucher.

There are 2 dates for the focus groups:

Thursday,

10th February 2022

2000pm to 2200pmWomen or birthing people with multiple long-term conditions only
Tuesday,

8th March 2022

2000pm to 2200pmWomen / birthing people with multiple long-term conditions

with their partner / a family member / carer

Would you be able to spare some time to join this Focus Group? Do you know someone who may be interested in this study?

We thank you for your kind help.
