Blog, news, and updates
It has been just a week since the launch of the WRISK website and social media channels, and we are already overwhelmed by the number and range of people who have got in touch with us. We have received messages from senior research midwives, civil society organisations, public health professionals, and clinicians. Most importantly, we have been contacted by many people who have lived experience of pregnancy and have been on the receiving end of a multitude of messages regarding risk.
Introducing WRISK: drawing on women’s experiences to develop recommendations for public health messaging in pregnancy
The WRISK project is a Wellcome-funded collaboration between the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (bpas) and Heather Trickey at the School of Social Sciences at Cardiff University. WRISK engages expert stakeholders and draws directly on women’s experiences to develop recommendations to ensure effective and respectful public health messages for women in pregnancy.
