Pregnant woman

Health

Excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) increases the risks for pregnancy complications, postpartum weight retention and offspring obesity.

Approximately 45% of women in Sweden have GWG above the recommendations. In this project we will build on our ongoing mHealth intervention, the HealthyMoms trial which aims at promoting a healthy GWG, dietary habits and physical activity through a smartphone app (HealthyMoms).

In this project, we will tailor and translate the HealthyMoms app to target priority populations such as migrant women (HealthyMigrantMoms). The development of the HealthyMigrantMoms app will be initiated in 2019.
