BEAD Feasibility study
Does the baby head elevation balloon (Fetal Pillow®) make an emergency caesarean section, when the cervix is fully dilated, safer for māmā and pēpi?
A 12 month feasibility study is starting from the 7th August 2023 at Auckland Hospital. This trial may be suitable for hapu māmā who are term with a cephalic, singleton pregnancy needing a caesarean at 10cm dilated.
Can we safely reduce the risk of breathing problems for newborn babies by giving corticosteroid injections to their mothers before a planned caesarean section?
This trial is underway at Auckland Hospital and Liggins Institute, The University of Auckland. This trial may be suitable for you if you are having a planned caesarean section at 35 – 39+6 weeks of pregnancy.

Maternal Psoriasis and Infant Neurodevelopmental outcomes (MaPINO) Study
Do inflammatory conditions, such as psoriasis, influence a child’s development? We have designed a study to research this question and are inviting pregnant women with and without psoriasis to take part. All women will have dedicated surveillance of their psoriasis (and dermatology review if needed), and all children will get a full neurodevelopmental assessment at two years of age (plus a small gift and parking and travel expenses). Women less than 15 weeks pregnant will also have blood tests to look at markers of inflammation.If you are interested or would like more information, please contact: Ms Susan Law Research Nurse, p. 021 744 958 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.Visit the MaPINO study page() for more information about participating.
