Would you like the opportunity to express your own views and experiences on becoming a parent for the second time?
Deborah Rodriguez is a PhD candidate at Middlesex University. Her research will follow couples on their journey to and through the transition to second-time parenthood, capturing the addition of your new family member. This is an area of research that has hardly been explored, and will help to provide some insights into what parents’ experiences are of their relationships when they have a second child.
Deborah is interested in how parents experience this new period in their lives, and you can help by sharing your story with her.
She would like to meet with both partners of the same couple several times, from when the pregnancy of the second child is at around the 6 months stage through to the first year of the child’s life to catch the transition to second-time parenthood.
The research primarily involves interviews, where you can talk about whatever you like with regards to your relational and parenting experiences. The research process is very flexible, and will be arranged around times and locations that are convenient for you. Information provided will be completely confidential and anonymised.
If you are interested in participating, or would like to know more about the research, please feel free to contact Deborah. Please note that by contacting her, this does not commit you to taking part.
Or if you know any couples who are currently pregnant with their second child and think they may be interested in sharing their experiences, please pass their details onto Deborah.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please do get in touch with Deborah for further information firstname.lastname@example.org
