Pregnancy Experiences across Switzerland

Pregnancy – it can be joyous, exciting, nerve-wrecking, heart-breaking, and everything in between. Our pregnancy module would like to capture the varied experiences of parents across Switzerland, providing a resource for other parents who may be going through similar experiences, and for medical professionals to understand what their patients face outside the medical office. 

If you have a story you would like to share, please do get in touch with us. Our research team is currently looking for mothers who have recently given birth and who have done non-invasive prenatal testing (you may know this as the Praena test, Harmony test, or Panorama test). We are also looking to understand the experience of mothers who have children with chronic illnesses and genetic syndromes, as well as that of mothers who have made the decision to terminate their pregnancies because of genetic conditions diagnosed in their child. 

Please know that you can choose to be as private about your story (using it anonymously for research) or as public about your story (i.e. sharing it on our website) as is comfortable for you. 

We are grateful to the selfless contributions of all our participants.
