Implementation Action to prevent Diabetes from Bump 2 Baby (IMPACT DIABETES B2B): a low-resource system of care intervention for appropriate gestational weight gain and improved postnatal outcomes

Project description

New app to prevent gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes is associated with multiple adverse pregnancy outcomes. Women with gestational diabetes are at subsequent high risk of type 2 diabetes, especially three to six years after delivery. What is more, exposure to hyperglycaemia in the womb predisposes children to becoming overweight or obese, both associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. The EU-funded IMPACT DIABETES B2B project will develop and demonstrate an evidence-based, low-resource system-level intervention. It will identify those most at risk of developing gestational diabetes and provide them with personalised coaching delivered via a smartphone application. The main aim will be to empower the target group to make healthy decisions that will improve pregnancy and postpartum outcomes.
