What is the purpose of this trial?

We have two studies that are designed to understand more about motherhood and being a mom. In the first study, women will attend four visits during pregnancy and the postpartum period, where they will complete computer-based tasks, questionnaires, EEG (to measure brain activity) and a play session with their child. The second study follows a similar design, but is for mothers with infants under 1 year to also participate in four visits, one of which includes fMRI. During the EEG and fMRI studies, participants will see infant faces and listen to infant cries.
