Have you recently had a miscarriage? What was your experience of talking (or not talking) about it to others?
I am a Trainee Clinical Psychologist at University College London and I am undertaking some research looking at women’s experience of support following a miscarriage.
I am interested in whether or not women talk about their miscarriage to those around them, for example, to their partner, friends, family or a support group. I am also interested in women’s accounts of how people respond to them, including both helpful and unhelpful things that people have said. I’d like to hear about a range of experiences, including when women have told no-one.
We are inviting women (over the age of 21) to participate if they have had a first trimester miscarriage in the last two years but more than three months ago.
If you decide to take part I will ask you to meet with me to discuss your experiences of receiving support. The meeting will last about an hour and a half, and will either take place at UCL or somewhere of your choice. If you are interested in participating in the study or would like further information, please contact me:
