I am looking for mums and babies to take part in a University of Adelaide research project looking at the social and genetic factors affecting oxytocin (a hormone involved in childbirth, lactation and facilitating social behaviour).
If you have a baby aged between 6 and 10 months, and if you are not currently pregnant or taking any anti-psychotic medications, you may be eligible to participate. The research is being conducted in the northern metropolitan region of Adelaide.
The session involves taking a mouth swab and two saliva samples from both mother and baby. An interaction task will also be conducted, which will involve the mother changing her baby's nappy. This task will be recorded by the researcher on a mobile phone. Finally, the mother will fill out two questionnaires that look at mother-infant bonding and maternal mood.
If you are interested in participating, please visit the website
for more information and to contact a member of the research team.
