The Triple B Pregnancy Cohort Study: Bumps, Babies and Beyond is an innovative Australian study of approximately 1600 families. The project is a longitudinal pregnancy cohort which examines a wide range of biopsychosocial factors that relate to the health and development of Australian children and families. Importantly, the project has a key focus on examining the impacts of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use in pregnant women and their partners during the prenatal period on infant development and family functioning.
