Not sure if anyone is interested. Below is a link to a study being done on couples with 3 or more consecutive miscarriages. I stumbled on it by accident. I don't know if it is okay to post here - I would think so. It is paid for research - but no windfall...it's only $100. I think it's more of a token than anything. I will be emailing to see if I can find out more. I don't know if I would qualify currently. I am not even sure what the study is about. If it would help raise awareness or quality of care without putting me at any additional risks, I would be happy to try & participate. I will let you know if I get more info.

Rebecca,

Thanks you so much for your e-mail. I really appreciate you sharing
your experiences with me and offering to help in recruitment for the
study.

This particular study has a strict criteria and only includes couples
who have experienced multiple miscarriages and are not currently
pregnant and do not have any living children. The study focuses on
men's psychological/ emotional experiences with multiple miscarriages
and includes both the male and female partner.

I am sorry that I am not able to have you and your partner
participate, but I would be very appreciative if you can spread the
word about the study. I think the topic of multiple losses is really
important to research. It is imperative we gain a better understanding
of important and improved supports as well as the experiences of
couples who experience multiple miscarriage.

I have attached a flier about the study. Interviews are done in
person or over the phone and thus anyone in the US that fits the
criteria can participate. Each couple who completes the participation
will receive a $100 check for their time and participation.

Please let me know if you have any further questions about the study.
Again, I really appreciate your help and wish you the best!

Regards,
Erica

This is the flier she attached:

An Investigation of the Psychological and Emotional Effects of Multiple Miscarriages on Men
My name is Erica Tennenbaum and I am a doctoral student at Fordham University in the Counseling Psychology program. I am conducting a dissertation study investigating menís reactions to their partnerís multiple miscarriages. Although there is some research that exists focusing on the effects of miscarriage, few focus on menís experiences, and none focus on menís experience with multiple miscarriages. Hence, I am hoping to add new insights of menís experience and perspective during and after multiple miscarriages in order to help couples in the future who experience multiple miscarriages.
The significance of this study lies in the importance of learning more about the range of psychological and emotional effects of multiple miscarriages on men. The knowledge gained from this semi-structured interview study will provide guidance to medical and mental health professionals who work with men and women who experience multiple miscarriages.
If you and your male partner have suffered at least three miscarriages, please consider participating in this study. You will be asked to complete a short written questionnaire. Your partnerís involvement would include being interviewed individually by the primary research investigator. Interviews will most likely run between 40 minutes to an hour. All information provided would be kept confidential and neither you nor your partner would be identified as a participant in any publication that results from the study. After the interview is complete each couple will receive $100. If you are interested and agree to participate, and/or if you have any questions in regards to the study, you may contact me, Erica, at mmcstudy@gmail.com
I appreciate you taking the time to read this message and hope that you and your partner will consider being involved in this important area of research.
Take care,
Erica
