Vitamin D and pregnancy: The knowledge, attitudes and behaviour of Australian women

What is the purpose of the research?
The purpose of this research is to understand how much pregnant Australian women know about the good and bad effects of sun exposure, and how this affects their attitudes and behavior toward sun exposure and diet intake, both during pregnancy and in the early postpartum period.
Who is funding this research?
The project is funded by Higher Degree Research Student Budget of QUT. The funding body will not have access to personally identifying information about you that may be obtained during the project.
Are you looking for people like me?

What will you ask me to do?
Your participation will involve the following steps. First, log on to our website and complete the first questionnaires. Second, 1-2 months after your baby is born, we will invite you to complete a further online survey to look at your attitudes and understanding about sun exposure and diet in regard to your new infant.
Are there any risks for me in taking part?
There are no risks beyond normal day-to-day living associated with your participation in this project. However, your participation may involve minimal discomfort when reflecting on aspects of your medical and pregnant history. If you feel any discomfort, you may stop completing the questionnaire.
Are there any benefits for me in taking part?
