Parents of Newborns Study

Baby wrapped in blanket

Researchers at UNL are studying relationships between mothers and babies. Expectant mothers who are in their last trimester of pregnancy, healthy, 19 years or older, and speak English may be eligible to participate.

Risks: Risks are minimal. They include a possible breach of confidentiality and potentially mild psychological discomfort in responding to sensitive questions.

Compensation: You will be compensated $15 (gift card) for completing the first online survey, and $35 (gift card) for completing the second survey, interview and free play.

Join the Study


During your third trimester of pregnancy, you will be asked to complete an online survey that will take up to 30 minutes. Then, when your baby is about 2 months old, you will be asked to complete an online survey, Zoom interview, and video-recorded free play interaction with your baby. The survey, interview and play will take up to 2 hours total.
