Welcome to the UPBEAT trial!
Obesity is a major problem in modern society and we know that women who are heavy at the start of pregnancy can be at risk of almost every pregnancy complication particularly diabetes, and the baby can grow too large. This can cause problems at birth and longer term health issues for the child. The UPBEAT trial aimed to find out whether, by making changes to the food obese pregnant women eat and increasing physical activity reduces these problems, and leads to improved long term health for mother and child.
The UPBEAT trial was funded by the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
The study has now stopped recruiting. if you would like further information please contact Annette Briley (firstname.lastname@example.org) 02071883641
