...Why not tell us your story?

On this website, you will find information about the “Becoming Dr Mum” study, the researchers, what kind of questions we are asking and what would be involved if you decide to become a participant. 

After you explore the site, we invite you to contact us if you are interested in sharing your story.  At present, the study is funded to collect interview data from approximately 25 participants, but we are able to receive some additional written input.  A notice will be placed on this page when data collection is complete.

We value your expertise and insight about combining higher degree research with early motherhood, and look forward to helping you share them with others!
