Project 1: Pregnancy

Women are enrolled in the study when they are 16-18 weeks pregnant. Urine samples are collected throughout pregnancy to assess women’s exposure to BPA and phthalates.  Information on women’s diet and use of various products is also collected during pregnancy to investigate possible sources of exposure to BPA and phthalates.
