Diet, Activity and Screening after gestational diabetes: an Interview Study

The aim of the Daisies study was to explore and develop practical approaches to promote eating a healthy diet, being physically active and attending diabetes screening (also called post-birth or postpartum glucose testing) in women who have had gestational diabetes (GDM) in order to reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D) in the future.

During the Daisies study, we did detailed qualitative interviews with 20 women in East Anglia who had recently had a baby after a pregnancy affected by gestational diabetes. The study results helped us plan future care pathways to make sure we are giving women sufficient information to address their future risk of type 2 diabetes. 

The Daisies study is now completed and closed to new recruitment. Please see below for a copy of our final report. 

Thanks very much to the mums, babies and hospital sites who contributed to the Daisies study! Your contribution is hugely valued as we work to improve care for mums and babies affected by diabetes in pregnancy.
