mental health, partner’s occupation, physical and mental health And finally, current pregnancy, previous pregnancies and experiences of pregnancy loss. You might be able to take part if you are:

This study will look at how having a partner in the UK Armed Forces affects the health and wellbeing of women during pregnancy and following birth. We would like to find out how factors such as
deployment, training, family separation and relocation might affect women during pregnancy and the year following birth. The information you provide during the study could then be used by organisations, such as the NHS, Ministry of
Defence (MOD), the individual Services and Armed Forces family charities, to help improve support for women with a partner in the Armed Forces during and after pregnancy.
If you have concerns about your health and wellbeing, we recommend that you speak to your GP or midwife as soon as possible as they will be best suited to provide appropriate care. You can also download our e-guide which includes details
of organisations that may be able to offer support and guidance for a range of issues relating to pregnancy and parenthood.
The King’s Centre for Military Health Research (KCMHR), King’s College London, is the leading civilian UK centre of excellence for military health research. Independent of the Ministry of Defence and chain of command, our research has
provided much-needed evidence on the health and well-being of serving and ex-serving personnel and their families.
