What is BaBi Nottingham?
Born and Bred in Nottingham (BaBi Nottingham) is a new research study to link routine data from women and their children living in our city. This project will help us to learn more about how families in our area and beyond can live healthier, happier lives.
How the study will help
BaBi Nottingham will help us to gather information to track the health of children living in the city right from pregnancy and throughout their childhood. This can help researchers and health professionals to work with you to develop practical ways to improve the health and wellbeing of families in your community.
What happens next?
The study is due to start in the Autumn. You will have the opportunity to learn more about it from your midwife who will be talking to mothers-to-be about the study and what is involved. You may be asked if you would like to take part.
Our midwives will be speaking to women about this research in our antenatal clinics as well as in the community.
Part of a network
BaBi Nottingham is the first research study of its kind to take place in the city. But it is part of the BaBi network; a group of similar research studies that work together with the aim to improve the health and wellbeing of families.
The BaBi network is part of the Born in Bradford family and is supported by the National Institute for Health & Care Research Yorkshire and Humber Applied Research Collaborative.
