Research Opportunity – Full-Term Parents wanted

Lexi on front page

Would you like to assist with a research study?

We’re working with an Obstetric Consultant at the RVI, who is studying the impact of steroid injections given to a mother before induction of labour at 35 – 37 weeks to reduce the risk of the baby being admitted to the Neonatal Unit.

In order to progress this study, the researcher needs the assistance of a parent whose baby was born full-term. To take part, you must fulfil the below criteria:

  • Your baby was born between 35 and 37 weeks
  • Your baby was admitted to the Neonatal Unit
  • Ideally, your labour will have been induced.

For this part of the study, it does not matter whether or not you received a steroid injection before the birth.

If you would be interested in taking part, please contact, who will then pass on any suitable candidates to the research team.

We are very grateful to anyone who is able to offer their time for this.
