Bavarian Longitudinal Study Cohort
The BLS started off as a geographically whole population study of infants admitted to neonatal special care in South Bavaria (Germany). The children and their families were recruited from 16 children’s hospitals, including 153 neonatal units.
Data Collection Event
Perinatal data were collected from medical records and clinical assessments on gestational age, maternal smoking during pregnancy, pregnancy complications, delivery and birth, infant sex, length, weight, head circumference, parental socioeconomic status, infant nutrition/breastfeeding, neonatal morbidity, respiratory support, hospital admissions and discharge from the NICU. Additionally, the parents of the infant completed the Family Adversity Index (FAI), Psychosocial Stress Index (PSI) and the Parent-Infant Relationship Index (PIRI) during an interview.
