Brief description Babies born prematurely are more likely to experience problems as a result of being born early with males doing worse than females. The mechanisms causing this difference are unknown. The control of blood flow in the placenta and fetus is essential for normal growth and development. This project will investigate the influence of duration of pregnancy, gender, and exposure to antenatal steroids on pathways that control blood flow in the placenta and the newborn in babies born after prematurely.
