Prenatal Environment And Child Health (PEACH) Study

Prenatal Influences Study

Why is this study being done?

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how prenatal factors such as nutrition influence infant and toddler behavior. Study participation will last from the beginning of your pregnancy (less than 24 weeks gestation) and will last until your child is 3 years old. There will be a total of 6 study visits (2 during pregnancy and 4 visits with your child). We will also collect samples of your placenta and umbilical cord blood after your birth, but this will not require any of your time or attention. Qualified participants will be compensated up to $550 for time and travel.


  • 18-40 years old
  • Currently less than 24 weeks pregnant
  • Planning to deliver your baby at OHSU
