Eating disorders and pregnancy: Developing training for healthcare professionals

What is the purpose of the research?
We are a small team of researchers from King?s College London and we are developing a training film about eating disorders for health professionals who care for pregnant women and new mothers. We want to include information about eating disorders and advice on how best to support women during this time. We need the help of mothers of young children who have experienced eating disorders in the past to help us develop the content of the film.

Who can take part?
We are inviting mothers who have previously experienced eating disorders to share their experiences of pregnancy and postnatal care with us. We also want to consult with maternity healthcare professionals who have experience of supporting women who have had eating disorders: if you know anyone who might like to get involved, please ask them to contact Amanda.

What does the study involve?
You can share your experiences by either attending a short workshop in London during August or September, or by email, or by telephone. If you choose to attend the workshop, we will reimburse your travel expenses and provide refreshments.

How can you take part?
If you are interested in coming to the workshop or contributing by email or phone, please contact project coordinator Amanda Bye to find more.
