This questionnaire is for the study child's mother or person taking the role of mother.
It will help us to catch up with some current problems you may have, as well as some features of you lifestyle.
Some of the questions we are asking may seem remote from the health of your study child, but the answers will help us to plan for studying the changes that will be occuring in our children as they develop, and how these may be passed down from one generation to the next.
To answer simply tick the box which is most accurate in your opinion.
If you do not want to answer a question or if it does not apply to you, put a line through it. There are no good or bad answers. Just tell us what is true for you.
