Posting on behalf of Mariam Murray, Keele University:

I am a masters student with a disability at Keele University, researching the experiences of disabled mothers breastfeeding their infant child. 

If you are a woman with a physical or sensory disability, over the age of 18, living in the UK with any experiences of breastfeeding, I would like to hear from you. 

I am looking for participants to take part in an interview, lasting between 30 and 90 minutes. Interviews will be held online between the 16th of June and 24th of July 2023. 

If you feel this is you and you would like to share your experiences, or if you would like to find out more, please get in touch using the below Microsoft form link. I have limited time to recruit and interview participants so please get in touch as soon as possible. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Does it matter if I'm no longer breastfeeding?

    @sharonspinkact , I don't think it does, when you click on the survey it says: I am a masters student with a disability at Keele University, researching the experiences of disabled mothers breastfeeding their infant child. If you are a woman with a physical or sensory disability, over the age of 18, living in the UK with any experiences of breastfeeding,

    Yes it's always a good idea to check that medications are safe to take whilst breastfeeding. The Breastfeeding Network is the best place to ask too.
