They are looking for as many Mums with babies under 6 months old to do an online survey.

If you want to discuss this with the person doing the research, her contact details are Dr Amy Brown, University of Swansea – email@example.com
Amy says – ‘The initial findings are really interesting – we have looked mainly at osteopathy and reflexology so far but in the sample we have they appear to be linked to both an easier birth and longer breastfeeding duration.’ - which must be good
