Are you currently between eight and 15 weeks pregnant, or know someone who is? If so, then you or pregnant mums you might know are invited to take part in a study to examine the role of diet and nutrition on the mental health of pregnant women.

While most mums cope well with the huge adjustment of parenthood, some women develop depression, anxiety or both during pregnancy or after birth. There is little research as to why this happens for some women and not others. Prevention and treatment focus on counselling and medication, which might not be available or suit everyone.



Angie Willcocks is an Australian psychologist who specialises in women's mental health and is conducting a PhD with the University of South Australia looking at whether what women eat impacts on their mental health during pregnancy and postnatally. She has designed this study to be totally online so it is easy for women to take part. The first survey will be completed when women are eight to 15 weeks pregnant.

Women will be asked to complete four online questionnaires - two during pregnancy and two in the early postnatal months. All participants go in the draw to win a Coles-Myer voucher at each survey time. For the first three survey times there are five $100 vouchers to give away, and the last one there are five $200 vouchers to give away.



This research will further the understandings of diet, stress and mental health during pregnancy and the postnatal period. At the moment, researchers don't know enough about the effect of a woman's diet on her mental health during pregnancy and postnatally to be able to make clear recommendations to women.

Please share this page with anyone you know who might be interested in participating – studies like this work best if lots of people participate!
