Aimee McGinn, a trainee clinical psychologist at Canterbury Christ Church University, is recruiting people to participate in research investigating what helps and hinders new mums with OCD in disclosing unwanted, intrusive thoughts about harm coming to their infant to their health visitor.

It is common for new mothers to experience these thoughts but limited research has been carried out to understand this experience in new mums with OCD. She is interested in speaking to mums who have been able to talk to their health visitor about these thoughts and to mums who have felt unable to do this.

She hopes that the outcome of this research will help to inform guidance for healthcare professionals to better support new mums in the future.

If you think you might be interested in taking part or if you have questions please contact Aimee McGinn
