How was I chosen to participate in PRAMS?

Your name was picked at random from the state births for the month that you received the questionnaire. Only a small number of women are chosen to help with this project. By choosing names at random, we are able to get a general idea of the health of moms and their newborn babies. In other words, we are not picking just one type of person or situation - all situations are important and it is likely that your story will be like other women that were not chosen.
