WELCOME!  YOUR RESPONSES CAN HELP MOMS AND MOMS-TO-BE!!!

Many women struggle with postpartum anxiety after having a baby. Your responses can help us understand postpartum anxiety better. The purpose of this study is to investigate the ability of the Postpartum Specific Anxiety Scale (PSAS; Fallon, Halford, Bennett, Harrold, 2016), to identify and track the frequency of anxiety symptomology during the postpartum period.

o Spend less than 15 minutes answering questions about your postpartum thoughts, behaviors, and feelings

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
o  Women who are at least 18 years of age
o  Women who had a baby within the past 0-6 months

YOUR responses have the potential to help mothers and soon to be mothers with their postpartum health care!
