Proposed Research Study on Social Support in Childbirth

Hazel Williams of the University of Sussex recently contacted me about a study she is conducting on the effect of social support on childbirth experiences. Details are posted below:

This month and next, there is an MSc Health Psychology study being run
at the University of Sussex (UK). We are carrying out research looking
at the effects of social support on experiences of childbirth. The
findings from this study will help us understand how different types
of support during birth may affect women's feelings of control and
emotions during and after childbirth.

If you are interested in taking part, the Health Psychology online
study can be found at:

All of the information you give in the questionnaire will be treated
as strictly confidential and will be used only for the purpose of this

Best wishes and thanks for your time.

Hazel Williams
