AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How do maternal health complications affect the long-term health of women and outcomes in subsequent pregnancies?

Severe maternal morbidities are rare, but increasing in the U.S., and the causes and long-term consequences are poorly understood. All of Us would provide a study population with enough participants, detail, and follow-up time to thoroughly investigate how complications during pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum affect future health in women and their children to inform prevention of negative outcomes, such as cardiovascular disease and fetal loss in subsequent pregnancies.
