Women and Babies Research

The obstetric and midwifery team at Sydney Local Health District are active participants in a number of research projects driven locally, nationally and internationally to improve pregnancy outcomes for mothers and babies. The team focus on clinical and translational research in the prediction, prevention and minimization of adverse obstetric outcomes (pre-eclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction, failure of labour to progress, preterm delivery and MCDA twin pregnancies). In addition we are committed to high quality research that will inform and improve care of women and babies.

We work closely with our neonatal colleagues to improve our understanding, detection and prevention of causes of stillbirth and neonatal death. We are involved in some innovative research looking at non-invasive methods of data collection during labour.
