Young mothers asked to share experiences

Are you an African American or Latina mother 18-years of age or older, pregnant or with a child up to age 2? If yes, take a moment and think back to your pregnancy and remember if–after you had your baby–you ever:

  • Felt sad, worried, anxious, or overwhelmed
  • Had a case of the baby-blues
  • Lacked energy or had trouble sleeping

If yes, Dr. Carol Brownstein-Evans and Dr. Robert Keefe would like to hear from you. You can share as part of a focus group of other mothers, or in an individual setting. Transportation is available if needed. Refreshments will be provided, and mothers who participate will receive a $20 Tops Grocery store gift card. 

Small group discussions will be held at Anthony Jordan (82 Holland Street) and Brown Square (322 Lake Avenue) health centers in the Fall of 2014. Please contact Dr. Brownstein-Evans (Nazareth College/GRC MSW Program) at 802-5182 or 395-8459, or Dr. Keefe (University at Buffalo School of Social Work) at 716-645-1230.
