Hi, my name is Jenni Shaw and I am a Trainee Clinical Psychologist based at the University of Surrey. As part of my training on the Doctoral Programme, I am conducting a piece of clinically relevant research with members of the public in order to add to the evidence base.

I am researching factors that contribute to anxiety symptoms (e.g. worries) in people expecting a baby because this area is of great interest to me. I have worked with lots of people experiencing anxiety and I would like to further our knowledge in this area. I also hope that the outcome of this research will increase the information about emotional difficulties available to those expecting a baby.

In order to learn more about this I need to ask members of the general public (both men and women) who are expecting a baby to answer some questionnaires twice; once during the pregnancy (second or third trimester) and once 4-8 weeks after birth. This will allow me to look at change over time.

If you would like more information you can look at the participant information website:

If you would like to take part in the research please email me on:

Thanks for reading!
