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 is designed to enable families in the area to 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 now open. You can learn more about it from your midwife. Our midwives are talking to mothers-to-be about the study and what is involved. You may be asked if you would like to take part at your next antenatal clinic appointment or conversation with your midwife.

Part of a network

BaBi Nottingham is the first research study of its kind to take place in the city. It is part of the much bigger BaBi network; a group of similar research studies that work together 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 and Care Research Yorkshire and Humber Applied Research Collaborative.
