Showing trials for
  • Assessing the Safety of Pregnancy In the CoRonavirus (COVID-19) pandEmic

  • Emotion-Diet Interactions in Pregnancy

    open to eligible females ages 18-40

    This study will investigate how maternal emotional state following a controlled stress exposure in pregnancy influences blood glucose and insulin levels after eating a standardized meal, and whether the effects of emotional state on blood glucose and insulin is different after eating a healthy meal (low GI) compared to a less healthy meal (high GI).

  • Healthy Moms Study

    open to eligible females ages 18-40

    See https://studypages.com/s/healthy-moms-study-765273 This individual-level randomized trial involves pregnant women followed for at least 6 months after delivery, to compare the effects of providing two "attention-control" counseling interventions designed to increase pregnant women's awareness of either: 1. the maternal health benefits of breastfeeding, or 2. the health benefits of smoke-free homes

  • Healthy pregnancy study

    “We're looking for healthy pregnant people to participate in a mobile health program”

    open to eligible females ages 18-44

    Despite the negative consequences to maternal-child health from women gaining too much weight during pregnancy, up to 62% of overweight and obese women gain more pregnancy weight than is recommended. This project will establish the efficacy of Goals for Reaching Optimal Wellness (GROWell), an mHealth tool for achieving appropriate pregnancy weight gain and promoting postpartum weight loss among women who enter pregnancy overweight or obese. GROWell will fill a gap in research and clinical care by providing a validated, standalone mHealth tool for weight control during pregnancy and postpartum, which is a currently lacking resource.

  • Heparin Prophylaxis Dosing for Antepartum Hospitalizations (HEPDOSE)

    open to eligible females ages 18-50

    This study is a randomized control trial to compare gestational age-based dosing with standard dosing of unfractionated heparin for thromboprophylaxis of hospitalized antepartum patients. The investigators aim to determine the effect of dosing on receipt of neuraxial anesthesia and pregnancy outcomes and evaluate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of unfractionated heparin in pregnancy.

  • Mail Order Mifepristone Study

    open to eligible females ages 15 years and up

    This study aims to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of dispensing mifepristone via a mail-order pharmacy. The investigators will recruit patients at up to 10 primary care and internal medicines sites not currently providing abortion services around the country, as well as abortion clinic sites. Patients will go through routine in clinic visits to determine eligibility and then will receive the medications in the mail at their preferred address. The investigators will survey patients 3 and 14 days after the initial clinic visit and interview providers at the end of the study.

  • Medical Optimization of Management of Type 2 Diabetes Complicating Pregnancy (MOMPOD)

    open to eligible females ages 18-45

    Purpose: The objective of this proposal is to study the safety and efficacy of metformin added to insulin for treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) among pregnant women. Participants: 950 pregnant women with type 2 diabetes complicating pregnancy from 10 U.S. clinical centers Procedures (methods): Pregnant women with T2DM between 10 weeks and 22 weeks 6 days and a singleton fetus will be randomized to double-blinded insulin/placebo versus insulin/metformin. Primary outcome is composite adverse neonatal outcome (clinically relevant hypoglycemia, birth trauma, hyperbilirubinemia, stillbirth/neonatal death). Study visits monthly at clinical visits; blood draw at 24-30 weeks, newborn anthropometric measurements at less than 72 hours of life. Maternal and infant outcomes will be chart abstracted.

  • PED NEONAT 20-000599 Fetal Body Composition

    open to eligible females ages 18 years and up

    Obesity is an ongoing public health problem that is difficult to treat. There is evidence that obesity has fetal origins. Body composition, including visceral, subcutaneous, brown, and hepatic fat have been found to be important predictors in obesity and metabolic syndrome. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can quantify body composition that does not require radiation but is motion limited. The investigators have developed a motion-compensated MRI sequence, also known as "free breathing" MRI. In this study, the investigators plan to obtain free-breathing MRIs of pregnant women in the third trimester of pregnancy. MRIs will be obtained from healthy mothers, mothers with growth-restricted fetuses, and mothers with gestational diabetes. The different types of adipose tissue will be measured and compared between groups and correlated to birth growth parameters. The goal is this study is to assess if motion-compensated MRI can help predict early growth patterns in infancy.

  • Stelara and Tremfya Pregnancy Exposure Registry OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Study is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to certain medications, to evaluate the possible teratogenic effect of these medications and to follow live born infants for one year after birth. With respect to fetal outcome, it is important to evaluate the spectrum of outcomes that may be relevant to a medication exposure during pregnancy, and these include both easily recognizable defects which are visible at birth, as well as more subtle or delayed defects that may not be readily identifiable without special expertise and observation beyond the newborn period.

  • A RCT of CenteringPregnancy on Birth Outcomes

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether CenteringPregnancy group prenatal care can improve preterm birth rate and other birth outcomes, maternal psychosocial and behavioral outcomes, and decrease the racial difference in selected birth outcomes among African American and White women, compared to individual prenatal care.

  • A Study of the Effect of Probiotics on Gastrointestinal Function During Pregnancy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose as well as the aim of this project is to understand the effect of probiotics on gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction such as nausea, vomiting, and constipation that are found during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy. The primary objective of this project is to uncover whether probiotics have an effect on GI functional disorders. The secondary objective is to identify the microbiota associated with probiotic intake. The tested hypothesis is that gut microbiota influences the GI functions and may influence constipation, nausea, and vomiting during pregnancy.

  • COVID-19 PRIORITY (Pregnancy CoRonavIrus Outcomes RegIsTrY)

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    PRIORITY (Pregnancy CoRonavIrus Outcomes RegIsTrY) is a prospective cohort study of pregnant and recently pregnant women who are: either patients under investigation for COVID-19 or a confirmed case of COVID-19. Data from PRIORITY will be used to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on the clinical course and pregnancy outcomes of pregnant women and women within 6 weeks of pregnancy.

  • Increasing Influenza and Tdap Vaccination of Pregnant Women

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Pregnant women who get influenza are more likely than non-pregnant women to have serious complications, including hospitalizations, death, preterm labor and premature birth. Pertussis can cause hospitalization or death for newborns. However, influenza and Tdap vaccination rates for pregnant women are low nationally. In this study, the investigators will perform a randomized controlled trial aimed at practice change in obstetricians' offices, with an overall goal of reducing morbidity and mortality from influenza and pertussis infections.

  • Prospective Study of Pregnancy in Women With Cystic Fibrosis

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    In this study, the investigators aim to evaluate changes in lung function in women with cystic fibrosis (CF) during pregnancy and for 2 years after pregnancy based on exposure to highly effective cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators.

  • Research on Improving Sleep During Pregnancy

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The overarching goal is to utilize a randomized control design to examine acceptability, feasibility, and adherence of mindfulness-based stress reduction plus prenatal sleep supplement (MBSR+PS) compared to treatment as usual among pregnant people with poor sleep quality (n=50).
