UNIVERSITY RESEARCH STUDY: Understanding how people who do not meet their parenthood goals adjust

The Cardiff Fertility Studies Group is conducting a research project to understand how people who don’t meet their parenthood goals adjust, so that supporting interventions can be developed.

If you have not been able to have children OR you haven’t had as many children as you would have liked, and you are not currently engaging in fertility treatment, then you are eligible to take part in this survey. We are confident that the results of this study will lead to improvements in the aftercare process for those who do not realise their parenthood goals. We are hoping to recruit around 250 participants, and if you enter your email address at the end (which will not be linked to your answers in the survey), you will enter the prize draw to win one of four £50 Amazon vouchers.

The Cardiff Fertility Studies Group (http://sites.cardiff.ac.uk/fertilitystudies/ ) researches all aspects of fertility health to better understand the experiences of men and women trying to have children. Our work creates the science to support you because it: • Helps to better document the experiences of people trying to conceive • Supports people trying to conceive • Optimises conditions for fertility • Guides professionals to take a patient-centred approach in their care of people trying to conceive • Provides the evidence that policy makers need to prioritise fertility issues
