The birth of a child is an important transition for any romantic relationship. Prior research suggests that the stress of the experience can put substantial strain on couples. This study is designed to investigate the relationship dynamics that promote healthy romantic partnerships during and following pregnancy. Undergraduate research assistants will work directly with Dr. Martin to observe pregnant couples' behavior during a video-recorded interaction task. Learning to observe and evaluate interpersonal interactions can provide essential skills for students looking to pursue a career in psychology or a related field.
