Bump2Baby and Me - Innovative health-coaching app for pregnant women

Parent Interventions

Bump2Baby and Me is a new project awarded funding from the EU's Horizon 2020 research and development programme. Led by researchers from the University College Dublin and the University of Bristol, this five-year project will address weight management during and after pregnancy. The goal of the 'Bump2Baby and Me' project is to deliver implementable solutions for hospitals and health service providers to better support women during pregnancy and the critical first year, via health coaching on healthy eating and physical activity.

The €4.4 million project brings together a team of world-leaders in maternal and child health alongside a cutting-edge mobile health technology company.  The team is looking to address the issues of obesity and overweight in pregnancy through an innovative app that links to a real health coach, tailoring weight management for each mum and helping them to give their baby the best start around feeding and active play. The study of the health coaching app is going to run in maternity hospitals in Ireland, the UK, Spain, and Australia.

Bump2Baby and Me is a five-year project with a total grant of €4 million from Horizon 2020 and additional funding from Australia. The project started on 1 January and a comprehensive website will be launched in May 2020. To keep up-to-date with the project’s progress follow @bump2babyandme on Twitter.
