Living with Disordered Eating and Body Image Concerns while Pregnant

Terri Burton is a PhD Candidate at the University of Notre Dame Australia and is conducting research to understand the lived pregnancy experience of women with a known eating disorder and who have birthed within the previous 12 months.

Questions will be asked regarding participant’s views and feelings about their experience. They will also be asked if they have any suggestions that could help health professionals support pregnant women who have disordered eating or body image concerns.

Interviews of approximately 1 hour duration will be conducted at a convenient time and place for participants. This may be on the phone or via computer or face to face.

These interviews will be recorded and transcribed prior to being returned to the participants for feedback. Participants will not be able to be identified and personal material will remain confidential. Research findings will be available for participants at the completion of the study.

The research has implications for clinical practice and it is intended that not only is a picture obtained of what it is like for women with eating disorders to be pregnant, but that the women’s voices serve as a platform to improve maternity care to eating disordered women.

Ethics approval for the study has been obtained from University of Notre Dame Australia.
