Who We Are

About Our Organisation & The MothersBabies Project

MothersBabies is a registered charity. We are empowering mothers-to-be with evidence based science to transform their health pre-pregnancy, during pregnancy and at birth so that their health and the health of their baby is optimised for life. In so doing promote the prevention of disease in mothers and babies.

We are also supporting a vital project that is harnessing the emerging science of gut bug health to create a safe, personalised and proven therapy to reduce common, potentially avoidable, complications and diseases for pregnant women and their babies. These include preeclampsia, diabetes, premature birth, asthma, eczema, autism and allergies. Professor Emad El-Omar and his team at the Microbiome Research Centre at St George Hospital, part of the UNSW clinical research campus, are developing this therapy.
