Pregnant in Edinburgh, the Lothians or the Borders?

You are invited to take part in the 'Born in Scotland' pregnancy research study - there are NO extra appointments or blood tests and you can take part at any time in your pregnancy.

The Born in Scotland study hopes to find out how health in pregnancy and early childhood shapes our lives. Help our team of researchers answer questions like:

  • Why are some babies born too early or ill in Scotland?

  • How does our time in the womb shape our health throughout our lives?
