Do work conditions underlie disparities in maternal mortality, preterm birth, and breastfeeding?

Over half of U.S. births occur to working women. A woman’s job dictates her ability to take leave for prenatal and postnatal care, to remain off work after the birth to heal and care for the baby, and to continue to breastfeed her baby through the first year of life.

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What genetic, physiological and environmental factors contribute to structural birth defects and functional defects?

Enroll sufficient numbers of pregnant women and offspring to study the genetic and non-genetic factors that contribute to human structural and functional defects and developmental disorders. Recruitment of sufficient pregnancies and pediatric cohorts is important to investigate the cause of birth defects and their long-term effects. A family-based approach will be effective in dissecting the genetic or nongenetic components... more »
