A woman's reproductive experience: Long-term implications for chronic disease and death

Project description

Studying the long-term effects of pregnancy complications on maternal health

Although preeclampsia, preterm birth and other pregnancy complications can affect maternal health, this connection has not yet been studied in depth. The EU-funded HealthierWomen project aims to study the various patterns of pregnancy complications that occur alone or in combination across pregnancies and analyse their association with cause-specific maternal mortality. The research will be conducted by linking significant data from women's reproductive histories as registered at the Medical Birth Registry of Norway to population-based death and cancer registries. In this way, HealthierWomen aspires to shed light on how pregnancy complications affect long-term maternal health and to contribute to the development of more effective chronic disease prevention strategies.
