Have you or your partner been pregnant in the past 5 years?

Share your experiences of antenatal and newborn screening.

Your involvement in the VALENTIA study will help to make recommendations to improve screening.

Participants in the UK can take part in one of two ways:

  • Two-session focus group: a friendly online chat with a group of up to six people with a similar background as you share your experiences. The first session is background information and second session will involve sharing your positive and negative experiences. The sessions take place on a website designed for the research. The conversation will be anonymous and no cameras will be present. 
  • Individual telephone interview: a private conversation with a researcher to talk at length about your journey. This will last one to one and a half hours.

Participants will get a £20 voucher for taking part.
