The ACORN Study
We are running a research study for pregnant women who are experiencing stress or anxiety. The study is looking at a programme which aims to help reduce anxiety and stress in pregnant women. The programme involves three group sessions led by midwives. We are in the early stages of this research and so the purpose of this study is to do the sessions with a small number of women, and their partners where possible. We will then ask for feedback on all aspects of the programme and how we run the study. This will help us to work out what works best for women and their partners and will help us to design a larger study involving more participants.
