Are you a woman with a spinal cord injury (SCI) or with a physical disability who is thinking about getting pregnant, currently pregnant, been pregnant before, or have decided not to get pregnant?

Researchers from The University of Michigan are working to create a tool that women with SCI or with a physical disability can use when making the decision about whether to become pregnant.  Right now, they are working to figure out what should be included in this tool.  They will then test it with women to see if it’s helpful.  To be eligible in this study you must:

  • Be female
  • Be 18 years or older
  • Speak English
  • Fall into at least one of the following groups:
    • Thinking about getting pregnant
    • Currently pregnant
    • Been pregnant before
    • Have decided not to get pregnant

What is involved?  Study participation involves a telephone call to determine whether you are eligible for the study and the completion of an online survey.  Compensation for study participation is $25.
