Are You Expecting Your First Child?


We Are Recruiting Lesbian Couples!


We are recruiting expectant women and their female partners for a study about the transition to first-time parenthood! You can participate from home if you do not live in the Ann Arbor area.

All participants must be:
(1) Living together
(2) Expecting their first child (for both partners)
(3) In the first or second trimester of pregnancy

This study involves completing several online survey throughout your (partner's) pregnancy. You will also be asked to provide several saliva samples, which you can do by coming to our lab or sending the samples to us in the mail. Eligible couples can receive up to $300 for their time.
