Moral Decision-Making Regarding Infertility Treatments Among American Catholics

We’re looking for women between ages 18-65 who identify as Catholic and have experienced infertility or have used/considered using reproductive technologies to participate in a study examining how Catholics rely on faith to cope with infertility and make decisions about whether and how to treat infertility.

Participants will be asked to participate in a 1-2 hour interview over the phone or video-chat. The interview will involve questions about one’s experience of infertility, one’s faith practices, and one’s opinions on reproductive technologies. Participating in this study is completely voluntary and you are free to stop at any time. We hope to use the results of this research to contribute to scholarly research regarding how faith influences how women cope with infertility and discern treatment for it.

If you would like more information about being in this study, you can contact Emma Mcdonald, at 410.456.1682 or If you know someone who may be a good fit for this study, please feel free to forward this email/send this post/announcement to them.

Telemedicine for Fertility Treatment During COVID-19 Pandemic: A Survey Study of Patient Attitudes

Have you used telehealth before for infertility care? If yes, please take our survey! Telehealth visits have quickly expanded since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been shown in some medical specialties to be easy to use and liked by patients. However, the fertility journey is uniquely personal and how YOU as a patient may feel about seeking fertility care using telehealth visits is not well known. Please help us gain more insight by taking this brief 3-5 minute anonymous survey. Your responses will shed light on whether telehealth visits should continue in the future and what improvements should be made. Thank you!
