Fibromyalgia & Pregnancy Study - volunteers needed

Fibromyalgia & Pregnancy Study:   Volunteer participants are required to take part in a study on fibromyalgia and pregnancy

This research project aims to explore the subjective experiences of women with fibromyalgia within the context of transition to motherhood.

We are looking for women diagnosed with fibromyalgia who are reaching their third trimester of pregnancies or have completed their pregnancies no more than 2 years ago, to participate in an interview and share their personal experiences on how is like living with this condition during pregnancy.

The individual interview will take up to an hour and will be held at a convenient time and place for you. Specifically, you may wish to meet the investigator in a quiet location near your workplace or where you live, or even at your domicile, so that no travel will be required from you. Skype or phone interviews will be  also considered when a face-to-face interview may not be possible. 
This study is carried out by Ana Tunaru, a postgraduate student in Health Psychology at the University of Surrey, Guildford, and is supervised by Professor Mark Cropley who has extensively researched fibromyalgia syndrome.

 In order to take part:

  1. You must have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia at least 2 years prior to the onset of your pregnancy;
  2. You should be approaching your third trimester of pregnancy or gave birth to a child no more than 2 years ago;
  3. You should live in the UK and speak English fluently.

If you meet the above mentioned criteria and are interested to join this study or need further information, please don't hesitate to contact Ana Tunaruby email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.or by phone  0750 36 54 920.
