Dr. Suzanne Tough has been the principal investigator on numerous community based complex prenatal interventions, including an RCT of nursing supported prenatal care, a pragmatic trial of group prenatal care (Centering Pregnancy), and a demonstration project of phone support for maternal mental health. Currently the principal investigator of the All Our Babies/Families cohort, the study was established to understand the intersection between family and maternal well-being, including maternal mental health, and social support and child outcomes, as well as to understand trajectories of health, resilience and development across childhood. AOB/F has data from 3200 mothers and children. Participants have completed a series of questionnaires from the prenatal period through to when children are 5 years of age. AOB/F has information on demographics, lifestyle, physical and mental health, social support, stress, parenting, breastfeeding, infant and child development. This study will contribute to the understanding of the biologic mechanisms and social/environmental pathways underlying associations between early and later life outcomes, gene-environment interactions, and resilience among children and families.
