What is the project about?
This is the second phase of a project called ‘Responding to Reproductive Coercion in Australian Primary Care’ conducted through the Department of General Practice at the University of Melbourne. The project is looking at women’s experiences of having someone force them to get pregnant, terminate a pregnancy or continue a pregnancy against their wishes and their interactions with health services. We are investigating what support and help women think they should be provided by health professionals.

Who is it for, and what is involved?
We are inviting women who are aged 18+ and who have ever had someone try to get them pregnant when they didn’t want to be, tried to force them to get an abortion or keep a pregnancy when they didn’t want to. We are looking for women who have experienced one or multiple of these to participate in a confidential interview with a female researcher from the University of Melbourne. The interview can be conducted at The University of Melbourne, or over the telephone if attending in person is not possible.

Participants will be given a $30 gift voucher as a token of appreciation for their time.
