Taking part during pregnancy

This page explains the C-GULL Study for people who might be interested in joining


We are inviting all of those who are aged 16 years and older and who are pregnant with their first child and have chosen for their care to be at Liverpool Women’s Hospital to take part in this study. We will also ask partners (if applicable) if they would like to take part.

We want to involve all families from different ethnic, cultural, social and family backgrounds so that we can understand how to improve the health and wellbeing of all children in the Liverpool City Region.

Despite the region’s outstanding ability to pull together and look after each other we presently have no answers as to why our children get such a tough deal compared with others within the UK. C-GULL will help us understand and address the many underlying health and social issues which drive these inequalities and, most importantly, help us to improve the future for the next generation of children.
