I’m Jenny, mother to 4 ½-year-old son, Henry, who was born a preemie at 34 weeks. Now, I’m a doctoral student at St. Mary’s University investigating mother’s activities in the NICU and the mother-infant relationship that develops for premature infants.
If you are the mother of a premature infant who was cared for in the NICU, I invite you to participate in my dissertation study. Participation involves a 20 minute, anonymous, online survey for those meeting criterion.
Your exploration of these topics may help researchers and mental health professionals better understand which NICU interventions are most strongly related to mother-to-infant attachment and educate NICU professionals and parents about the importance of these practices.
