Mothers are key to the success of Children of the 90s. 14,500 women living in the greater Bristol area agreed to take part in the project when they were pregnant in 1991 or 1992. Since then they have attended numerous Focus visits, donated biological samples including their placenta and DNA, and answered thousands of questions about themselves and their children.

If you’re a Children of the 90s mother, you may have been involved in Focus on Mothers which ran from 2009 to 2015. Thanks to the 5,000 women who took part, we have gathered an enormous amount of information about women’s physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing during the menopause years, which is often a time of great change. We’ll soon be able to share the results of this research with you, so watch this space!

I feel very proud and impressed to have shared in this research with my daughter. I am sure this is providing gold-standard information about our population, health and lifestyle. Hopefully this will provide constructive evidence on how we better manage our diet and lifestyle to nurture future generations.
