Hi! I’m excited to join the QS platform. I thought this study may be of interest to individuals here–and I’m happy to take any questions you may have. I’m the principal investigator for this study and we’re looking for pregnant individuals interested in participating in research.
Currently enrolling participants living in OR, WA, or CA only.
Curious about when labor might begin?
So are we! In this study we ask participants to wear a ring (Oura) on their finger that measures biological signals like temperature, heart rate, breathing, sleep and movement. We will track in real-time changes the body is going through as pregnancy gets further along and postpartum too. Participants get to keep the device (and a copy of their data), no visits required. We also invite partners/spouses to enroll as well.
Qualifications to participate:
Planning vaginal birth, generally healthy pregnancy, age 18-50, willing to use smartphone
