This project aims to determine whether a mobile-health (m-health) tool, accessible via smartphone or website, intervention for overweight and obese pregnant women improves physical activity, gestational weight gain, quality of life, stress and depression during pregnancy. This study will examine factors associated with using the m-health tool and the most highly utilized features of the tool, with a goal of understanding how it can be used and improved in future behavior change interventions. The hypothesis is that compared with usual care, an m-health intervention will result in increased minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity and increased knowledge of the IOM GWG guidelines. The study design is a small pilot randomized trial to assess feasibility. This study will recruit and follow 70 overweight and obese pregnant women during the first trimester of pregnancy from Kaiser San Francisco and other facilities. The m-health intervention has the advantage of enabling overweight and obese women to monitor and improve their health behaviors without impacting the work flow of clinical care. Depending on the results of this initial evaluation, the clinical implications may include its implementation at the health system level and/or being evaluated and improved in the future by a larger investigation in a randomized controlled trial. The study team will assess adherence and acceptability of the intervention to inform future studies.
|Experimental: Lifestyle Intervention
The goal of the intervention is to help women increase their minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity and to increase their knowledge of the IOM gestational weight gain guidelines. The lifestyle intervention will be delivered through telephone counseling sessions with a study dietician trained in motivational interviewing techniques, as well as through technology-based tools, automated text messages and core lifestyle intervention sessions.
