The MySafeStart study

Up to 80% of all pregnant women experience nausea and vomiting during pregnancy (NVP). We know from earlier studies that even mild NVP can have an impact on the women`s quality of life, relationship with partner and willingness to get pregnant again.

In the MySafeStart study, we aim to determine whether a mobile application (app) as a decision aid for NVP can have an impact on pregnant women`s self-management, knowledge, and understanding of NVP. Your experience with NVP is therefore valuable for our research and for making this study possible.

Participate in the MySafeStart study

Who is conducting the study?

The MySafeStart study is a collaboration between the MotherSafe clinic at the Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney, Australia and the University of Oslo, Norway. 

Who can participate?

We want to invite all pregnant women over 18 years who are currently experiencing NVP to participate. 

What does participation involve?

You will be asked to answer four questionnaires in total. Half of the women participating in the project will also be asked to track their NVP symptoms daily.
