A lot of women start breast feeding, but very few babies are breast fed for more than a few days or weeks. There are many suggestions about how to help women who want to breast feed for longer, and online support is one suggestion (online support in this context means using the internet as a source of support). This project seeks to explore if and how the internet can help women with breast feeding. Has the internet helped you with breast feeding? Is there anything missing in the breast feeding support that is available online? These are some of the questions that this study seeks to address ….
My research has been funded by a Vice Chancellor Research Scholarship from the University of Ulster.The research team members are Professor Marlene Sinclair, Professor George Kernohan, Dr. Janine Stockdale and Maria Herron.
This study has been checked by other people who are knowledgeable in the subject area and by a Filter Committee and Ethics Committee in accordance with the University procedures.

I am researching women’s use of the internet in relation to breastfeeding and would be very grateful if you could share your views by completing this short online survey (it should only take a few minutes):
If you have a bit more time, I would also like to interview some women in more detail about using the internet to help with breastfeeding. If you are available to be interviewed (by email), i would be delighted if you could contact me on email@example.com
