STEPS Project

Welcome!

Thank you for taking the time to complete the last part of this study!

We are a group of researchers from University College Cork, Ireland. This survey looks at your emotions and experiences during pregnancy. It is shorter than the previous questionnaire you completed and should only take 10 minutes to complete.

Any information given will be anonymised,confidential and stored securely. You have the right to withdraw at any point during the questionnaire by closing your browser. Once you click ‘Done’ at the end of the questionnaire your information will have been randomized and stored, making retrieval of your unique responses impossible. If you have any questions about the study please don't hesitate to contact us at StepsResearch@gmail.com


To begin the survey, simply begin answering the questions below.
