Born into Life is a study that aims to investigate how conditions prior to and during pregnancy, prenatally and in early childhood affect the child’s growth and health problems later in life. We have collected information on environmental and lifestyle exposures (questionnaires) as well as genetics (DNA, methylation) and biological samples from blood, feces, saliva, the umbilical cord and placenta We have several ongoing projects and welcome collaborations.
