The MothersBabies Study

The MothersBabies Study

MothersBabies raised $189,000 at it’s inaugural Yuletide Party on 21 June 2018 at the State Library. After the most recent commitment of $1m from the Federal Government, we now need to raise a further $4m.

The MothersBabies Study is harnessing the emerging science of gut bug health to create a safe, personalised and proven therapy to reduce common, potentially avoidable, complications and diseases for pregnant women and their babies. These include preeclampsia, diabetes, premature birth, asthma, eczema, autism and allergies.

We are supporting a vital project that is harnessing the emerging science of gut bug health to create a safe, personalised and proven therapy to reduce common, potentially avoidable, complications and diseases for pregnant women and their babies. These include preeclampsia, diabetes, premature birth, asthma, eczema, autism and allergies. Professor Emad El-Omar and his team at the Microbiome Research Centre are developing this therapy.

Studying and understanding how gut bug imbalances contribute to common diseases is a global scientific phenomenon currently changing the face of modern medicine. This therapy holds the potential to change the future health of mothers, babies and children in Australia and will be at the forefront of preventative medicine worldwide. We owe it to humanity to support the development of this evidence-based therapy.
