Pregnancy and Birth

Pregnancy and Birth

 

Members of the Raine Cohort were recruited at King Edward Memorial Hospital in 1989 as part of a Randomised Control Trail to investigate the effects of repeated ultrasound throughout pregnancy. This study and subsequent follow-ups have detected no long term adverse effects of repeated ultrasound in pregnancy. King Edward Memorial Hospital and the Women and Infants Research Foundation at KEMH have remained actively involved in research on the cohort. The cohort has provided invaluable information on using ultrasound technology, the factors impacting growth in childhood and pregnancy features that place individuals at risk of diabetes and high blood pressure.
