Would you like the opportunity to take part in an online Q&A with the founder of Big Birthas, Amber Marshall?
Do mums with a higher BMI get a raw deal from health professionals? Parenting Science Gang members will be asking me about the experiences that we sometimes experience, and what the research really says. Do mums with higher BMI have more problems during pregnancy and birth, or is this just a perception of some health care providers?
Parenting Science Gang is a Wellcome-funded citizen science programme where parents are looking for evidence-based answers to the parenting questions that affect their lives. You can find out more on their website: http://parentingsciencegang.
If you are a larger mum or mum-to-be, or you are just interested in the topic, you’re welcome to come along and share your experiences and hear about what research has been done.
On Thursday 9th November at 9pm, Parenting Science Gang will be chatting to me using a closed Facebook group set up expressly for the purpose, which they’ll delete afterwards. If you do not use Facebook, rest assured that setting up an account just for this session is not time consuming, and it is easy to delete your account afterwards.
This is a text-based session, so you just need to be able to read and type to get involved. Just join the event FB group: https://www.facebook.com/
groups/190504264828426, and turn up on Thursday 9th November at 9pm to chat! I’ll do my best to answer as many questions as possible!
