Get involved

How you can get involved in BaBi-D and also have your say on this exciting research study.

Joining the BaBi-D programme

What’s involved

By giving permission for our research team to use your data as part of the BaBi-D research study, you will be helping us gather insights that will lead to improved health outcomes for families across the Doncaster area.

Participants will be invited to join when they are pregnant. Your midwife may talk to you about joining the BaBi-D research programme during routine appointments, at any time from point of booking until after you have given birth and are discharged from maternity care.

You will be given a Participant Information Sheet by your midwife, which will explain more about the research project. Your consent will be requested for your data to be included in the research project. The type of data recorded will be the same as is routinely gathered about you and your child, for research purposes. The data links your health, social and education records and that of your baby by using unique identifiers (eg name, address, date of birth, NHS number).

If you are happy to take part, you will be asked to give your consent at the next appointment, and your consent will be stored with your maternity records and by the research study. You do not need to do anything further to consenting, and you have the right to opt-out of the research at any point.

We really appreciate your support on this journey. Together, we can understand our community needs better and what can be done to improve health outcomes for our future generations.
