Maternal health involves all health-related issues pertinent to mothers and their babies.  A healthy start to life is integral to the health of future generations. Our researchers investigate the health of women throughout preconception, pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum and the strong interactions that exist between maternal well-being and the health of offspring.

Research within this theme spans perinatal research, neonatology, pregnancy, and paediatric and obstetric medicine and health science and involves the full spectrum of research activity from basic science through to clinical trials and implementation.
