About this study?

If you are currently carrying excess weight and are planning pregnancy, weight loss is advised. There are many different weight loss programs available. However, it is not known which weight loss program is preferred in women planning pregnancy.

The University of Melbourne is conducting a clinical trial to compare two different weight loss programs. Women who wish to take part in this trial will participate in one of two different weight loss programs for a period 3 months. Women will then be observed prior to and during pregnancy.  Information about the health of mother and baby will be collected. 

To participate you must be:
  1. Female aged 18-38 years old
  2. Planning pregnancy within the next 6 months.
  3. Living in Victoria, Australia.
