Teesside women who have recently had a pregnancy are being asked to take part in a contraception research study.
The research team at North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust is taking part in the postnatal contraception study, being led by Newcastle University.
Vicky Collins is a research assistant practitioner. She said: “We know that lots of women struggle to access contraception care in the weeks after they give birth.
“Understanding where barriers to contraception care exist will help us to deliver improved services for new mothers that are better-equipped to prevent unplanned pregnancies.
“As part of this work, we are speaking to healthcare professionals who care for women during the postnatal period. This includes midwives, doctors, health visitors and nurses.
“But it is the views and perspectives of the people who use services that should be at the heart of any new strategy intended to improve access to contraception.
“As such, we are also asking if you have completed a pregnancy in the last three years to share your experiences of postnatal contraception in an online survey.”
