The Epipage 2 team thanks all the staff in the obstetric /gynecology and neonatology departments who contributed to the smooth execution of the study in their departments and to the perinatal data collection.
This staff included referring physicians and investigators.
The role of the referring physicians was to identify the children to be included in their hospital or clinic, to inform parents about the study, and to ensure the children were included. They also contributed to the collection of specific medical data.
The role of the investigator was to collect the data in the different centers participating in the study (in the maternity units and neonatology departments).
