Did you participate in our postpartum depression study? We are conducting a follow-up study with the children who were born during that study!

We want to know what factors influence children’s development and mental health, and are following up with these kids at the ages of 5 and 10, and beyond! Keep an eye on your inbox for more information if your child is approaching one of these ages. Thanks to all the moms and kids who have participated so far!

If you have any questions please contact Rolan at rolan.batallones@ubc.ca.

  • Are you concerned or confused about how a genetic condition in you or your family members could impact your future children? 
  • Have you been told you may have a genetic condition, and aren't sure what questions to ask? 

Learning that you or a family member has a genetic condition can cause stress, worry or leave you with unanswered questions.  A genetic counselor, with their specialized training in genetics and counseling, can help you as you work through the information, conversations and decisions that may result from learning a condition runs in your family.
