Dear HealingWell chatters. My name is Tammy Vallido and I am a student researcher/doctoral candidate from the University of Western Sydney. Peter the site webmaster, has kindly allowed me to adverstise a study I am conducting. I am seeking Australian women who have children, that are willing to discuss what it is like dealing with an illness while being a mother. If you live in Sydney or close by, you have the option of meeting for a chat, otherwise you can share your story through email or over the phone. I have no criteria regarding the type or severity of the illness as it is the effect on your mothering I am interested in. I can be contacted on 02 4620 3355, 0435044715 or emailed at t.vallido@uws.edu.au It is hoped that this study will contribute to better health care for women. All information you provide will be held in the strictest confidence, and this study has full ethics approval (HREC 7473). I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story. Kind regards Tammy

Thanks Summerstorm, looking forward to some responses from Aussie women :) As a nurse I have seen some really sad situations. Womens maternal responsibilities are rarely considered during treatment and hospitalisation, even though the mother role is really important to women.

I'm an Aussie but I don't have human kids - only furkids (don't really want any other kind). I'm guessing that's not what you're looking for though lol

Hi Im an Aussie I live in QLD and I am a mum but my kids are now grown women, however I have suffered with chronic illness now for the past 22 years and I believe it has affected my relationship with my daughters over the years. If I meet your criteria I would be happy to answer some questions,I am 47 years old now my daughters are 28, 25 and 22. Good luck with your research :-)
