Becoming a new dad can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Even if this isn’t your first baby, each infant may offer you different joys and challenges. Because fathers are instrumental in child rearing, we want to know more about you!

This study gives dads an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings about their baby and their lives as parents. Through a few short questionnaires and virtual visits with our study staff, you can help future dads prepare for the joys and challenges of fatherhood.

Fathers can earn a $25 gift card for completing the study and receive insights and resources from one of our highly trained research assessors. Participation includes only 2-3 study visits, and each visit takes no more than 90 minutes.

Currently, all our studies are being conducted virtually. We do this through videoconferencing for each study visit and online forms available through our Research Portal.
