Born in Bradford is a prospective pregnancy and birth cohort established to examine how genetic, nutritional, environmental, behavioral and social factors affect health and development during childhood, and subsequently adult life, in a deprived multi-ethnic population. It was developed in close consultation with local communities, clinicians and policy makers with commitment from the outset to undertake research that would both inform interventions to improve health in the city and generate robust science relevant to similar communities in the UK and across the world. This cohort contains information on a wide range of characteristics collected from 12,453 women (and 3,356 partners) who experienced 13,778 pregnancies and delivered 13,818 live births between 2007 and 2011.
