We conducted a longitudinal tracking study following a cohort of more than 100 women from 3 months antenatal to 6 months postnatal.

The Red Brick project team led the study successfully from a full NHS Ethical Review process right through to a successful completion.

Study participants took part in a series of in-home interviews and qualitative exercises as well as maintaining a study diary. The results of the research were instrumental in informing radical change to the programme of antenatal breastfeeding education provided to women.
