Prof Desiree Silva shares information on COVID-19 and Pregnancy

Be a vital part of leading research into the experience and effects on families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are asking all ORIGINS participants to complete additional questionnaires that will measure wellbeing, perceived stress, financial hardship and family functioning during the COVID-19 pandemic.


As of 25 May, samples can once again be dropped at Suite 213 at the Joondalup Health Campus. Please call the team on 0466 339 281 before coming.

We will continue to offer home collections at all sample time points via a scheduled courier service that will run on set days. We will need to book your collection into the service around one week in advance.

Please call or text the team on 0477 247 361 to book your sample collection.

Alternatively, samples can be dropped off at select Western Diagnostic Pathology centres listed on your sample instruction sheets. Please note that some collection centres are currently closed so please check the WDP website before visiting a collection centre.
