The effect of prenatal physical activity on metabolic health and vascular function in mother and offspring

Researchers at Liverpool John Moores University would like to recruit pregnant women aged 18 to 45 years who've been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, are carrying one baby, haven't smoked for at least 6 months, and have no previous history of stroke, or heart or respiratory disease to take part in a study that is aiming to investigate the relationship between daily physical activity behaviour and blood sugar levels.

You will be asked to wear two physical activity monitors to collect your step count and sitting and standing time, and one glucose monitor to collect blood sugar data for seven consecutive days. You will also be asked to log your food using a food diary, and provide one blood sample through finger pricking.

This study will help to develop better knowledge on gestational diabetes and help to improve maternal health during pregnancy.
