Participant Research Trials

Are you pregnant with twins?

The Program for Pregnancy and Postpartum Health (exerciseandpregnancy.ca) at the University of Alberta is looking for women who are pregnant with twins.

This research study is looking at how a woman’s heart and blood vessels change during twin pregnancy. Also, the study aims to develop our understanding of physical activity in women with twin pregnancies.

Women should be:

  • Pregnant with two babies;
  • Over the age of 18;
  • Local to Edmonton and surrounding area (as the study takes place on the University of Alberta North campus).

The researchers are in the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation at the University of Alberta. Dr. Victoria Meah is a Postdoctoral Fellow working with Dr. Margie Davenport and Dr. Craig Steinback.
