Raine Study Team

Mothers of the Raine Study participants were recruited at around 18 weeks pregnancy from King Edward Memorial Hospital and surrounding private clinics between 1989 and 1991. 

A total of 2,900 women were enrolled into the study and their babies became the Raine Study cohort. There were 2,868 babies born including 60 sets of twins and 2 sets of triplets. These mothers completed questionnaires during their pregnancy, had ultrasound measurements and provided information for the study. After  birth and subsequently when their babies were one, two and three years old, the mothers and their babies participated follow-up assessments. The photograph below shows Prof John Newnham and the original research nurse team who started the Raine Study and collected this information.
