Help Make Health Care Better for Mothers with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities

For Mothers:
Sometimes people with intellectual or developmental disabilities aren't treated the same at the doctor, especially if they are pregnant. We want to make health care better for mothers with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We need help from mothers who have intellectual or developmental disabilities.
If you are a mother with an intellectual or developmental disability, we want to talk to you!

  •  We would ask you questions about what it was like when you were pregnant and had your baby.
  •  It takes about an hour to be interviewed.
  •  We would come to you. If you live far away from us, we may interview you over the phone.
  •  You would get $50 as a thank you.
  • Your baby needs to be younger than 18 months old (1 and a half years old).
  •  Remember, it's ALWAYS your choice to be involved in research. You don't have to do it.

For Clinicians:
If you are a clinician who has worked with women with intellectual and developmental disabilities through the pregnancy process, we want to talk to you!
