My Baby, My Doctor & Me: Family Voice in Early Relational Health Pilot Study

November 2020

This pilot study was designed to generate questions and further areas of research needed to advance the ongoing dialogue about family voice, equity, and the concept of early relational health.

This exploratory study focused specifically on exploring parent perspectives on foundational early relationships, and the potential for the family and child health care system to play a supportive role, by working with three groups of families: (1) African American mothers living in inner Northeast Portland; (2) Spanish-speaking Latinx mothers living in rural Oregon; and (3) White mothers living in an isolated rural community in Southern Oregon. You can also find other key takeaways here.
