Donating cord blood samples at the Rosie Maternity Hospital, Cambridge
Our team of research midwives recruit mainly patients undergoing elective C-section at the Rosie Hospital. They will contact expectant mothers through out-patient appointments close to delivery. We are also hoping to recruit expectant mothers earlier in pregnancy, at the 20-week scan. Patients will have the opportunity to ask questions at both study entry and at later appointments, and are free to withdraw at any point. Only patients under the care of the Rosie Hospital are eligible for the study, as it is not open at any other hospital in the UK.
