Tell us about your experience of having a lung condition during family planning and pregnancy

We have launched a survey to learn more about how having a lung condition can affect a person’s options and choices around family planning and pregnancy. 

This survey aims to find out more about the experiences of people with lung conditions, from considering starting a family to after childbirth.

You can complete the survey online:

Help us reach as many people as possible by forwarding the survey link to anyone who may be interested in sharing their views.

The anonymous survey responses will help healthcare professionals working with the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) to understand how people with a lung condition are currently cared for during pregnancy, and will help to highlight areas where more research is needed.

We recognise that every person’s experiences and decisions about having a family are personal to them. Please be aware that some sections of the survey address sensitive and very personal topics. These questions will help us to understand the different perspectives and will help us to identify how people can be best supported.

The survey will be open until Monday 14 May 2018.

The survey is available in English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Just use the drop-down menu at the top right-hand side of the survey to pick your language.
