Psychology Study Recruiting Couples Pregnant With Their First Child

Researchers are interested in examining how couples navigate the transition to parenthood and all of the emotional and physiological changes this important, yet stressful, transition may bring.

As part of this study, we will have couples complete seven different sessions/tasks between their second trimester of pregnancy and 12 months post-partum.

Participating couples can earn up to $420 in Amazon gift cards throughout the course of the study.

We are looking for couples in Northwest Arkansas who meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Someone is currently pregnant
  • Both partners are at least 18 years old
  • Couples can be dating or married but must be in a monogamous relationship
  • This is the first child for both partners
  • Both couple members must be able to come to the U of A twice (once during pregnancy and once around 6 months post-partum)
  • One member of the couple must be able to drop off supplies at the U of A two additional times
  • Both couple members must be interested in participating in the study!
