Our MAGIC study is going into the final phase this month as we send out the 12 months postpartum questionnaires to our participants. MAGIC was designed to investigate weight gain and weight retention in pregnant women and initially recruited women in the 12th or 20th week of gestation. Since then our participants have completed questionnaires at 32 weeks gestation, shortly after giving birth and at 6 months postpartum.
Our questionnaires explore aspects of diet and physical activity, emotional well-being and the experience of pregnancy. We hope to be drafting our first papers soon.
