If you are under 25 years old and are pregnant, or have recently had a child, we would love to hear from you. A team of researchers from The University of Queensland have teamed up with the YHES House to try and understand what it is like to be a young parent. We want to follow young parents through the early months of being a parent, and talk to you once every six months to find out how you and your baby are, and how your life may have changed during that time.
This research involves interviews that can be done in person at the YHES House, or over the phone. We give a gift of a $30 Coles/Myer gift card for each interview, to thank you for the time you take to help us in this study. At the end of our research, we hope to have understood how different parenting is for each person, and how this might be unique for younger people. Your experiences will help us to create new programs and support services that will help young parents now and in the future.
