For a number of years now, Professor Cheryl Beck, from the University of Connnecticut, US, has been researching and writing about Post-Partum PTSD. This began after she met the TABS Chairperson, Sue Watson, at the Marce Conference in Christchurch, New Zealand, in November 2001.

Professor Beck has recruited for these studies via the TABS Website, with the full support of TABS. The four most recent studies have been co-written with Sue Watson.
