Welcome to the Couples and Kids Lab!

Whether you are a participant in our studies, a student looking for research opportunities, or a fellow academic researcher, we hope you will find what you are looking for on this website.

We are currently working on a study, the New Parents Project, which aims to explore the development of family relationships for couples expecting their first child. It will use survey, interview, and observational methods across four time points (prenatal, 3, 6, and 9 months postnatal) to address questions regarding factors that affect new fathers’ and mothers’ adjustment to parenthood.
