Research opportunity for mothers with IBD

Research opportunity for mothers with IBD

Researchers at the University of Leeds are looking for mothers who have Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and are from an ethnic minority background, or are single mothers from any background, to take part in a study relating to their experience of transitioning to motherhood. 

This study funded by Crohn’s and Colitis UK will assess the unique experiences, needs and challenges of mothers with IBD to better inform future mums-to-be, their families, partners and healthcare providers.

Researchers are looking to interview at least 20 women from across the UK who have at least one or more biological children between the ages of 2-7 years old. 

The researchers are based in Leeds but will travel to participants' preferred location. 

If you are interested and would like more information about the study, please contact Lead Researcher Jihane Ghorayeb at or Lead Supervisor Professor Anna Madill at
