Yale Pink and Blue Kids Study

Who is this for?

This is a follow up study is for women who previously participated in the original Yale Pink and Blue Study four to eight years ago. Now we are interested in understanding the effects of taking certain medications during pregnancy can have on a child’s behavioral, cognitive, and physical development. We are recruiting women who took medications during their 'Pink and Blue' pregnancy, women who smoked cigarettes during pregnancy, as well as women who did not.

What does it offer?

If you agree to participate in this study, we mail you a packet of brief questionnaires to complete ahead of time as well as saliva DNA collection kits for you and your child. Then you and your child will come to our office in downtown New Haven for a two-hour study visit to complete interviews and assessments and play some fun games. You and your child will earn $100 in gift cards to WalMart, Amazon, or Target.

Why does this matter?

This study will help us further understand how different exposures during pregnancy, as well as genetic differences, may affect or not affect child development in early to middle childhood.


If you have been selected to participate in this follow up study, we will get in touch with you! For more information, please call (203) 764-7210 or email Cerella at cerella.craig@yale.edu.
