Simon Noble,1 Rhian Lewis,2 Jodie Whithers,2 Sarah Lewis,3 and Paul Bennett2
As part of ongoing research at Swansea University, the university team are currently looking to recruit up to 12 people to take part in a psychological study.
This study aims to better understand the psychological impact of venous thromboembolism (VTE) on women during pregnancy and women who have had VTE and are now, or planning to become pregnant.
As this is a fairly new area of research, information gained from the personal experiences of participants will hopefully provide more insight into VTE. This can then be used to inform future research and will also help to develop interventions to support women who have experienced VTE during pregnancy, or who want to start a family.
