About This Project

If doctors think infants will have lower skill (e.g., less able to look and to smile at parents), does that bias lead them to expect mental health problems for the infants and their parents? We want to know! We think doctors’ mindsets about a baby’s potential to do things can affect how parents feel about themselves and their baby. This idea is important to study since positive views of one’s infant with a disability are linked to better attachment and to mental health benefits for parents.
