Hello, my name in Karen Colwell. I have been an expat for the last 7 years, having moved from my home country of Australia I have lived in Singapore, Finland and presently live in England. I am also a Masters student at London Metropolitan University and am about to embark on my dissertation. The focus of my dissertation is on the experiences of expatriate women in their first year following childbirth. The study is primarily concerned with understanding the relationship between how expatriate mothers have felt and the social support received postpartum.

I am looking for expatriate mothers, over the consenting age of 18, with a baby from birth to 12 months of age. The requirements of the participants are to complete a short survey online, which should take no longer than 10 minutes.

If you are interested in participating in this study please copy and paste the link below and it will take you to the survey. Please also pass the word along to others you know who may be interested in participating. Your time and help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
