Changes in body-mass index and smoking status between pregnancies and risk of miscarriage: the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s health
In this project, we will examine whether women who smoke or are obese before pregnancy have an increased risk of miscarriage. We will also look at whether changes in smoking habits or weight between pregnancies might influence the risk of miscarriage in the later pregnancy. The information from this project will therefore help clinicians in providing women with recommendations regarding their lifestyle to reduce their risk of miscarriage.
