Abstract

Pregnancy is seen an ideal time to make positive changes to health behaviours to ensure a healthy pregnancy and the best possible start in life for the baby. However many pregnant women have difficulty in maintaining a healthy diet and keeping physically active. My research explored maternal dietary and physical activity behaviours during pregnancy and resulted in the development and pilot of a Midwife-led intervention to facilitate healthful lifestyle behaviours. The intervention combined brief Motivational Interviewing and goal setting in early pregnancy using a collaborative woman-centred approach.
