You can help by joining us in Preterm Birth Prevention Study

When you take part in Strong Start, you are helping future mothers and babies by letting us track how you do during pregnancy. Strong Start is a research study to find out if birth center care helps lower the risk of babies being born too early.  This project will also help us learn more about birth center care.

You may not feel that you need the extra support or education given by Strong Start. This may not be your first baby, or you may feel that you already have good support from your family. We ask that you still join Strong Start if you qualify, because the information collected will help other mothers to know how to prevent their babies from being born too early.

Thank you for your help!
