HOW YOUR PREGNANCY AFFECTS YOUR SKIN?
Pregnancy can affect your skin in many ways.
At Melanoma Institute Australia, we are researching how pregnancy affects moles and we would like to get you on board.
About the study
The study involves free review by a specialist Dermatologist and photographs of all your moles (you keep a copy). We need to see you twice during the pregnancy, and once 6 months after your baby is born.
To accurately determine the effect of pregnancy on moles, we need you to bring your sister. She gets a free skin check and mole photography too.
How to participate
To be able to take part of this study you need:
▸ To be less than 26 weeks pregnant
▸ To have a full biological sister
▸ To have less than 100 moles on your body (or less than 12 per arm)
▸ To attend 3 appointments (1 hour each) at the Institute in North Sydney.

Frequently asked questions
Why this study?
How long does each visit take?
Why do we need your sister?
We need a control to confirm that any changes in your moles are due to pregnancy. We do this by comparing the types of changes that occur in women of a similar age who are not pregnant. Your sister probably has similar risk factors for skin cancer to you, including: skin colour, number of moles, childhood sun exposure and sun burn, and family history of melanoma.
