Weight retention following childbirth is common and has implications for a woman’s life-long weight trajectory, chronic disease risk, and risk of complications in subsequent pregnancies. Innovative health care approaches are required to help postpartum women overcome barriers to accessing support to achieve lifestyle and weight recommendations after childbirth. Video-consultations enable remote delivery of real-time, one-on-one healthcare, reducing the need for women to travel to in-person consultations. This is the first study to qualitatively report on women’s experiences engaging with a dietitian and exercise physiologist through video-consultations for tailored nutrition and exercise counselling to limit postpartum weight retention.
