I joined as I wanted to be able to have a say as a parent and volunteer in how the area I lived in can be improved in regards to children and their life chances. It’s made me reflect on my own experience of parenting and how I can bond more as a family, doing things together.

I was really conscious that I was getting such incredible treatment due to the vast amounts of research that has been done and the people who have volunteered to be a part of that process. I get to feel good by volunteering and I get to improve my longer term prospects – bonus!

Of course, we’ll never know whether or not I would have miscarried if I had not taken part in the trial, or if I had been part of the group that received the placebo, either way I feel fortunate and happy that I did participate. I hope the results of the trial will make a difference to the way women receive treatment moving forwards, and that I had a small part to play in that.
