The WRISK Project and COVID-19
This research will explore women’s experiences of being pregnant during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are interested in how messages about risk, COVID-19, and pregnancy have been communicated to you. We are also interested in how your experiences of antenatal care, pregnancy, and birth have been impacted by the global pandemic.
We are interested in your experience if you are:
- Living in the UK
- Aged over 16
- And if you have been pregnant, received maternity care, or given birth since the global pandemic was declared on the 12th of March 2020.
We are interested in learning about how things were for you whether you had a live birth, stillbirth, ended the pregnancy, had a miscarriage, or are still pregnant.
The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete.
About the WRISK project
The WRISK project is led by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (bpas) and researchers at Cardiff University, and is funded by the Wellcome Trust.
The WRISK team have worked with staff at NCT, Antenatal Results & Choices, Pregnancy Sickness Support, and Birthrights, to put together this survey.
The WRISK project is inclusive of trans, non-binary and intersex people. For this reason, the project team will always refer to individuals according to their self-determined gender. We tend to use the words ‘woman/women’ for convenience, as the great majority of people covered by the WRISK research self-identify as women. However, the WRISK project is inclusive of everyone who has been pregnant in the past five years; regardless of their gender identification. This includes trans men and non-binary individuals. If you have any questions about this please contact the research team.
