SMS Trial

Multi-site Randomised Control Trial (RCT) across the UK to investigate the effectiveness of a tailored SMS-delivered intervention supporting women with overweight or obesity with weight loss and maintenance in the postpartum period.

It is a two-arm trial: active control (messages on child development relevant to child’s age) and intervention group (messages addressing diet and physical activity). Recruitment of women is through the BiBBS cohort. The aim of this full scale RCT is to see whether it is effective and whether beyond this RCT they can explore scale-up and implementation of this service.
