A teen’s health and wellbeing during and after pregnancy play an important role in the health of her baby. The purpose of The Pittsburgh Study Pregnancy Survey is to help better understand the needs of pregnant females and those who support them. Researchers hope their findings lead to better ways to support healthy, happy, and safe pregnancies in our local communities.
This survey study is one of many parts of The Pittsburgh Study. In collaboration with UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, the University of Pittsburgh, community members, and local organizations, The Pittsburgh Study is designed to find out what works to help children of all ages thrive.
