AbstractFor her dissemination, Wilma plans to conduct a prospective pregnancy student that will involve couples trying to conceive. However, when reviewing Wilma's consent form, her advisor notices that it makes no mention of informing couples about the results of their pregnancy tests. Both Wilma and the Institutional Review Board, are torn about giving couple's this information, especially if couples had an early spontaneous abortion that they might not have known about otherwise. What should Wilma do?
