Have you had a pregnancy with gestational diabetes or know of someone who did? If so, I need your help!!
I'm a mother of 2 young kids working at Deakin University and was lucky enough to be awarded a prestigious National Health and Medical Council TRIP Fellowship to help prevent diabetes in women who have had gestational diabetes.
My research team and I are looking to improve the care of mothers who have had gestational diabetes after they deliver their babies. Did you know that by having gestational diabetes means your risk of developing diabetes is much higher? We are working with GPs to provide better diabetes prevention care but we need your help finding out what mums actually think about it!
We sent out over 12,000 letters to mums last month but the response rate has been very low so we are trying to get mums on board through social media, can you help us?? We are trying to get over 1,000 mums involved nationally and so far we are only at 350!!!
If you have had gestational diabetes, PLEASE take 10-15mins to go to our online survey (http://www.magdastudy.org.au/) and fill it out!
If you know of someone who had gestational diabetes or just other mums, please SHARE this post so we can spread the message!!
THANKS A MILLION XXX
