New Mothers & Infants Study 

Participants Wanted

We are seeking new mothers and their infants to participate in a study investigating healthy mother and infant outcomes, and levels of oxytocin, a hormone commonly known as the "love hormone". 

We would like to hear from you if you: 

  • are over 18 years old
  • have an infant between 2 to 5 months old
  • gave birth to your first child
  • did not have a multiple birth
  • are able to adequately understand and communicate in English

All volunteers will be screened and, if eligible, will attend one 45 minute appointment with their infant at the UniSA Clinical Trial Facility where they will complete some questionnaires, participate in an interaction task and provide a saliva sample.  Participants will be reimbursed for their time.  

For further information, please contact the UniSA Clinical Trial Facility:
