Dr. Helen Mulol obtained her Ph.D. in Paediatrics from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Her research involved a longitudinal study of breast milk intake volumes in the first year of the infant’s life using a stable isotope technique, which also enables objective determination of exclusive breastfeeding. Since graduating, she has been involved in child health care research. She will be joining the University of Pretoria’s Research Centre for Maternal, Fetal, Newborn and Child Health Care Strategies to work as Principal Investigator for the UmbiBaby study. This study will follow up some of the infants from the UmbiFlow international study, which is currently ongoing at the Research Centre and monitors infants for growth-restriction due to placental insufficiency. Growth, body composition and neurological development of the infants will be the major outcomes of the UmbiBaby study, which aims to provide further information regarding the management of infants after birth who were found to be growth-restricted in utero.
