Examining Misperceptions about Miscarriage in U.S. Adults

Publication Date: 
June, 2018
Abstract: 

Adults in the U.S., from a university or Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk), read a vignette about a woman experiencing a miscarriage and answered questions about reactions to the vignette, predictions about the subject’s future, demographics, knowledge of miscarriage, belief in a just world, locus of control, and liking of children. Participants anticipated the woman’s experience and future differently depending on their gender, her stated age, and whether she was trying to become pregnant.
