New Mother Survey

Welcome to the Alaska New Mother Survey!

We are conducting a survey to better understand the experience of first-time mothers and their babies. Text or call (907) 331-0215 to see if you are eligible. 


What's involved?

Mothers complete a confidential survey about themselves and their baby. The survey can be taken on a phone, computer, or tablet, in about an hour. Mothers who complete the survey receive a $40 Visa e-gift card. 

Who can participate? 

Most first-time mothers of a 3-12 month old baby who live in Alaska and participate in WIC are eligible to participate. 

How do I participate? 

Text or call us at (907) 331-0215 to schedule a brief phone screening. We will ask you a few questions to make sure you are eligible. It will only take a few minutes. If you are eligible, we will send you a link to the survey and you will have a week to complete it, whenever is convenient for you. We will send you a $40 Visa gift card after you complete the survey. 

Who will know if I participate? 

The study is being run by researchers at California State University, San Bernardino. Only the researchers will know that you participated and the information you share will be kept confidential. 

How is WIC involved?

The Alaska WIC program has given the researchers approval to give WIC participants information about the study. Your decision whether or not to participate in the study will not impact your participation in the WIC program. The WIC program will never know whether you participated.

What if I have another question or concern?

Please feel free to contact us at (907) 331-0215 or 


This study has been approved by the California State University, San Bernardino's Institutional Review Board, IRB-FY2021-257.
