In the early 90s, midwives across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) invited all pregnant women due to give birth to join a new longitudinal health study called Children of the 90s.
The Children of the 90s has become a world a world-leading scientific resource with a vast collection of data and samples - which includes 10,000 placentas, 112,000 milk teeth and 11,500 toenails.
With over 20,000 active participants, Children of the 90s is now recruiting its third generation – the children of those original babies. Our health visitors across BNSSG have been asked to help find these new babies – called COCO90s (Children of the Children of the 90s).
Anyone born between April 1991-December 1992 in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire could be eligible to join the study.
To find out more, ask one of our health visitors for a leaflet, or send a text to 07772 909090 (with your full name and date of birth) or an email to email@example.com.
If eligible, participants will be invited to join in the study’s largest ever clinic in Bristol. Travel expenses are paid, and each participant will get a £40 shopping voucher as a thank you.
