It takes three to tango: Key players for a successful pregnancy

All day from Friday 26 March until Sunday 4 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Learn about the key players in a healthy pregnancy (mum, baby and the placenta), bust some myths and test your knowledge through our interactive info-quizzes.


The placenta is a very important organ, yet often overlooked. Through our interactive presentations you can learn what the placenta is and what jobs it performs. You will also find out about healthy diet and lifestyle during pregnancy,  antenatal care and the different stages of the baby’s development. 


At the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, we do research on the biology and the function of the placenta. We also conduct large population studies which aim at identifying key features that could predict problems in pregnancy. Our ultimate goal is to find better ways of helping mums to stay healthy during pregnancy and to give birth to healthy babies.
