This longitudinal study, which started in 2008, will follow over 7,000 babies and their parents for 21 years. This first wave surveyed expectant mothers and their partners about topics such as morbidity, fertility treatment, child care, exercise, maternity/paternity leave, family support, ethnicity, and knowledge of and involvement in Kiwi/New Zealand culture. The survey also asked expectant partners if they had received positive and/or negative information about childhood vaccination.
