Incorporated in 1806, Baldwin County is located in the central area of the state, about 90 miles from Atlanta. Milledgeville, the county seat and the county’s only incorporated city, served as the state capital from 1804 until 1868, when the designation was transferred to Atlanta.
Baldwin is mainly rural, with a population of about 45,000 and fewer than 600 births per year. That means that all eligible women living in the County have an opportunity to participate in the Study. The National Children’s Study encourages all Baldwin County women who are pregnant or may become pregnant to contact us.
