BaBi (Born and Bred in) East London: Exploring factors for poorer pregnancy outcomes in disadvantaged ethnic groups

PROJECT STATUS:
/
START DATE AND DURATION: Not yet started
Summary

Women from marginalised backgrounds are at higher risk of pregnancy complications. At Barts Health NHS Trust, where 70% of pregnant women are non-white, this project aims to find out more about the reasons for this, by making better use of existing health data.

Researchers will ask pregnant women for permission to use routine data and samples that they already provide during pregnancy. We will link these with other routine health, social or educational data, to find connections between pre-existing illnesses, ethnicity, and health and other outcomes for mothers and babies. This research will be the basis for better maternal and childhood healthcare.
