If you are 14 to 39 years of age, less than 18 weeks pregnant, and planning to deliver at UAB, you may be eligible for our education-based study. This study focuses on learning about healthy behaviors and how to make positive changes that could lead to a healthier pregnancy for you and your baby. Four study visits are spread out over 13 weeks during pregnancy, and one brief post-delivery visit where study staff visit participants in the post-partum unit. Participation includes a one-on-one education session, answering several questionnaires, and collecting lab work, including blood, mouth swabs & self-collected urine samples, and vaginal swabs. Also, three times during the study, participants are given a packet to collect two swabs at home and mail them in. Participants are compensated $230 for completing all study visits and specimens.
