txt4two program 

Welcome to the txt4two healthy lifestyle program. This study is being run from late 2019 and into 2020 by Mater Mothers’ Hospitals' dietitians and antenatal services.

What is txt4two? 

txt4two is a personalised mHealth (mobile health) program that supports women through their pregnancy. Its aim is to support women to achieve their dietary and exercise goals through regular communication through texting, links to quality online information, videos, and recipes developed by Mater Dietitians, Physios, Midwives and Obstetricians. 

The txt4two program was developed and evaluated in a Victorian maternity hospital to determine how well it promoted healthy eating, physical activity and healthy weight gain in pregnant women. Women who took part in the program gained significantly lower weight compared with women who didn’t take part. Most women engaged regularly with the program, with the majority (97.6%) reporting that the intervention was helpful. Women who took part in the program also managed to maintain healthy physical activity levels for longer through pregnancy.
