About LAMB

The LAMB (Los Angeles Mommy and Baby) Project is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. It is both a population-based surveillance tool and a community outreach project. The LAMB survey asks mothers who recently delivered a baby about events that happened before, during, and after their pregnancy.

In 2014, the LAMB Follow-Up re-interviewed mothers who responded to the LAMB survey in 2012 when the index child turns two. Click here for more information about the LAMB Follow-Up Project.
