Welcome to the Mother & Child Health Initiative!

A healthy start to a baby’s life begins with a healthy pregnancy. The Mother & Child Health Initiative is a community health survey in pregnant women at different trimesters. Our primary goal is to improve medical assessment and risk identification in pregnancy through blood testing.

By participating in this important initiative, you can help improve maternal health care in pregnancy and postpartum!

How can I help?

Pregnant individuals aged 18 to 40 with no history of chronic illness or current/recent prescribed medication use are invited to participate.

Participation involves:

  • Informed consent (online)

  • Health questionnaire (online)

  • Small blood donation (LifeLabs near you)
