The Path to Pregnancy: Prenatal Experiences of Mothers
Consent to Participate
Dear Mothers to be,
Thank you for your interest in this study!
My name is Molly Enzminger and I am a master’s degree candidate in the Infant Mental Health program at Mills College in Oakland, California. I am researching conception and mothers' thoughts and feelings about pregnancy. By participating in this project, you will help increase our knowledge of the mother-child relationship before birth and contribute to the development of more effective resources for pregnant women and their families. Professor of psychology at Mills College, Dr. Carol George, Ph. D., is supervising this project.
Participation in this study is completely anonymous and voluntary. Any questions you answer will remain confidential and you will never be identified by name. In addition, you may withdraw from the study at any time without consequence. All electronic data will be stored on a password-protected computer and will only be accessible to the primary researcher. Data will be kept for 10 years, after which the data will be destroyed.
You must be pregnant in order to participate.
The questionnaire takes 30-45 minutes to complete. Please note that you cannot save your progress and finish the survey at a later time, so please make sure that you have enough time to finish the survey in one sitting. Participants who complete the entire survey will be entered into a raffle to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
If you are interested in the general results of this study upon its completion or if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or my supervising professor at Mills College, Dr. Carol George at email@example.com.
