CDPCDP_AfterGDM_1Project aims: GDM is a common pregnancy complication, with up to 50% of these women developing type 2 diabetes, usually much earlier than the general population. Early lifestyle intervention is a successful tool in managing this diabetes risk, however engaging younger women in lifestyle interventions and screening is a global challenge. This research will create and evaluate a diabetes prevention pathway that goes across three distinct health system levels: maternity services, general practice, and community health services. The woman and her family will be at the centre of this prevention pathway.
