Mothers and Babies (MB) Smart Study

The Mothers and Babies Team at Northwestern University is excited to announce an innovation to the MB Course to better meet the needs of families in home visiting. MB SMART, a Mothers and Babies program aimed to support mothers’ mental health and strengthen the parent child-relationship using adaptive personalized technology. The MB SMART study is examining the feasibility and acceptability of using adaptive personalized technology. Clients are randomized to either receive MB 1-on-1 with a home visitor, or eMB (MB Online). Participants receive Ecological Momentary Assessments (EMAs) to monitor stress, clients that report high-stress levels to receive additional messaging and MB content.
