There’s a lot of talk about ‘preconception care’ at the moment. The idea is that the right help before becoming pregnant can improve maternal, fetal and infant health and well-being, both during and after pregnancy. Of course, not all pregnancies are planned, and even when they are, getting correct and timely information and advice is not always easy.
PEAcH Study is recruiting women with +30 BMI to learn from their experiences of pre-pregnancy care. It has been approved by the University of Plymouth Ethics Committee.
Do you have a BMI over 30? Have you ever received pre-pregnancy (preconception) care or advice? Whether you have considered, planned, or been pregnant, researchers at the University of Plymouth would like to hear about your experiences.
The PEAcH Study is now recruiting women with health conditions (including +30 BMI). They want to find out what works for who, and how, in terms of preconception care. The aim is to optimise services and improve health and wellbeing during pregnancy and beyond.
