Update: Recruitment is now closed

PUDDLES (Parents who suffer pregnancy loss and whose babies die during the pandemic) is a global collaboration between the UK, Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Italy, and New Zealand to understand the experiences of bereaved parents during the COVID-19 pandemic using qualitative interviews and analyses.

The collaboration is starting an investigation into women’s experiences of early pregnancy loss and care during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust is working on this project on early pregnancy loss and care during the COVID-19 pandemic with Petals (a baby loss counselling charity) and King’s College London.

You can lend your voice and experience to this study. If you have experienced an ectopic pregnancy, pregnancy of unknown location, molar pregnancy, or miscarriage (all up to 14 weeks gestation) since March 2020, you are invited to get in touch with Flora Kent-Nye at Kings College via email at Flora.Kent-Nye@kcl.ac.uk. [Note: recruitment is now closed]

All interviews will be held virtually and last for approximately 1 hour.
