Potential Study Participants


Potential Study Participants


Meredith College Assistant Professor of psychology Betty-Shannon Prevatt and Assistant Professor of Child Development Pamela Norcross are practitioners, researchers, and mothers who are interested in learning how to support pregnant people and new parents to enhance emotional wellbeing.

Dr. Prevatt and Dr. Norcross are recruiting pregnant people to join their study. If you join, you will be asked to complete two online surveys: one while you are pregnant and one after you have delivered your baby (or babies). The surveys will include questions about your social support network, prenatal care, and your emotional wellness during your pregnancy and after delivery. 

This opportunity is only available to patients of the Durham Women’s Clinic and Chapel Hill Obstetrics and Gynecology, whose support and participation is critical to the study.

In appreciation for your time and input, you will receive a small gift when you agree to join the study. You will also receive a $10 Amazon gift card once you complete the first survey, and a $25 Amazon gift card after you complete the second survey. 

If you are interested in joining the study, or if you would like to be contacted by our team, please reach out to us directly by emailing AIMSS@meredith.edu. For more information, you can read this Q&A about the study, titled “Informed Consent Form for Research“.
