Mental Health and Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is the most common motor disability in children with a prevalence of two per 1000 live-births. We have merged two large Nordic birth cohorts with data collected primarily during pregnancy in the MOthers and BAbies in Norway and Denmark (MOBAND) project. These data together with data from nationwide registers create a single platform with sufficient statistical power for studying prenatal risk factors for cerebral palsy. In the MOBAND project, information on cerebral palsy is obtained from the national cerebral palsy registries of Denmark and Norway, which keeps information on all children with a neuro-pediatric verified diagnosis at age 4-6 years.
