LOVE Study
Researchers at UNC are looking for FIRST-TIME MOMS who are PREGNANT, OR HAVE INFANTS YOUNGER THAN 2-MONTHS-OLD to participate in a research study about how infant feeding affects weight gain, inflammation and cardiovascular activity during the first postpartum year. Moms will visit us at 34-38 weeks of pregnancy, and once at each of the postpartum months 2, 6 and 12. Participants earn up to $565 for full participation.
