The Institute of Health Visiting is looking for people to take part in a survey. They would like to talk to anyone who works as part of a team delivering different news to families during pregnancy or shortly after birth. Interviews will take place at a time and location to suit, and will last no more than an hour. The researchers are offering a shopping voucher to all contributors to say thank you for taking time to complete the survey.
