The Los Angeles Mommy and Baby Project (LAMB)

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.
