The Oxford Safer Pregnancy Alliance (OSPREA) is a team of doctors, scientists, researchers, midwives, nurses and support staff who are working together with women to lead research into women’s health in the areas of reproduction, obstetrics and gynaecology. We conduct high quality studies that aim to help improve the care of women before pregnancy, and women and their babies during and after pregnancy.
You can find information on this website about what taking part in research means, the studies we are conducting, and how to let us know if you are interested in helping.
OSPREA Research Studies
The OSPREA Research Unit is currently running a range of studies to advance the understanding and care of women and babies during and after pregnancy
The OSPREA Research Unit is a dedicated centre based in the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, staffed by an experienced team of research midwives and doctors. We are primarily supported by the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, part of the University of Oxford, the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Thames Valley CRN, part of the National Institute for Health Research.
Research is vitally important to improving care for women and babies. We are currently looking for women to help us by taking part in our studies. Find out more about how to get involved.
