This cohort aimed to follow Karen and Burmese women from prospectively throughout pregnancy, at delivery and until 3 months post partum with serial high-frequency sampling to assess whole blood transcriptomics and microbiome composition of the gut, vagina and oral cavity, in conjunction with assessment of gene expression and microbial colonisation of gestational tissue.
