Pregnant women are motivated to make positive and previously unconsidered lifestyle choices in response to advice during pregnancy. Using this time to influence their long-term health behaviours could be beneficial. This study uses an action research approach to explore the impact of peer and professional social media based interventions on the situated learning of individual women.
