Abstract: This thesis is based on two projects, each consisting of two papers. In these two projects we investigated factors affecting the variability in gestational duration, and associations between maternal diet and neonatal outcomes. In the first project we investigated factors affecting the variability in gestational duration with a particular interest in the genetic contributions. The contribution of genetic factors to trait’s variability is estimated by heritability analysis. For gestational durat... more
