Description The Notre Dame Families and Babies Study (ND-FABS) is a longitudinal preventive-intervention study funded by the National Institute of Health. It provides brief educational programs for families that have recently welcomed a new baby. Families who participate will have opportunities to learn about communication between parents and sensitivity toward infants, and how those things can impact the relationships between fathers and mothers and their infant child. The primary goal of this study is to determine how best to support infants’ socioemotional development by promoting constructive and sensitive interactions in families.

The Notre Dame Family and Babies Study is actively recruiting participants in Fort Wayne, IN and the surrounding areas. Eligible participants are married or cohabiting parents of a child who is younger than 7 months old. Participating families will be asked to visit our center in Fort Wayne four times over the course of the year, and will receive program information, including weekly phone calls and/or home visits, over the course of eight weeks. Families could earn up to $230 for their participation over the course of one year and free child care is provided during each visit.
