Nutritional drink

Women taking part in our study will be randomly selected to receive a standard nutritional drink containing vitamins and minerals recommended for before and during pregnancy or the study nutritional drink, enriched with additional vitamins, minerals and probiotics.

The drink comes in the form of a sachet to be mixed with water and taken twice a day. You will be asked to take the drink before you become pregnant and continue taking it throughout your pregnancy.

The nutritional drink will provide you, at no cost to yourself, with the vitamins & minerals recommended for before & during pregnancy.

Ultrasounds

Taking part will allow you to have extra ultrasound scans during pregnancy at 7, 28 & 34 weeks, along with having your NHS ultrasound scans at 12 &19 weeks in our dedicated suite. You will be given pictures of your baby to take home.
