Leslie Davis is a researcher at Illinois State University. She has got an online survey up for mothers who have given birth in the last six months (I missed this by one day) and expectant mothers. The feedback from the survey analyses the mood and mental status of participants during and after pregnancy. The results will contribute to a study for the development of treatments against pre-natal and post-partum depression.
If you are currently pregnant, you can do both surveys. If you have recently had a baby, you can participate even if you didn’t do the part for pregnant women.
You might win a gift certificate for $100 and you may be eligible for other prizes also. More importantly, it’s participation in a worthy cause to help mothers cope better with the emotional changes of being pregnant. You will also be given an opportunity to learn about this research, which may be useful to you in understanding yourself and others.
Spare a few minutes of your time to fill out the online survey. On top of that, it’ll be great if you could forward this online survey to expectant mothers you personally know of.
