About the Study
Can a questionnaire about mindful eating be used in pregnant participants?
The Mindful Eating Questionnaire (MEQ) is a self-report instrument that measures several dimensions of mindful eating. Previous research indicates that the MEQ is a valid measure of mindful eating in healthy adults, but it has not been validated with pregnant women.
Pennington Biomedical Research Center is looking for pregnant women to participate in a two visit research study to determine if a questionnaire about mindful eating typically used by non-pregnant participants can be validated in pregnant participants.
