Baby Bio Bank

The Baby Bio Bank is a collection of over 50,000 biological samples and medical data collected fromover 2,500 pregnancies affected by recurrent miscarriage, preterm birth, intrauterine growth restriction and pre-eclampsia. We have also collected samples from pregnancies complicated with other medical conditions such as Diabetes, high BMI, hypertension, IVF, twin and a cohort of samples from uncomplicated pregnanciess. We hold DNA, RNA, serum, plasma and whole blood from both parents and urine from the mother. From the baby we hold cord blood, cord, placental tissues and membranes, DNA and placental RNA. The samples are avaliable for research into pregnancy complications.
