Women with a history of gestational diabetes are up to eight times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. This risk is highest in the first five years after the birth of their baby.

The good news is that the Life! program has been developed to help busy mothers significantly reduce this risk.

Life! is a behaviour change and healthy lifestyle program funded by the Victorian government and managed by Diabetes Victoria.  Life! helps participants gradually make small changes to their daily habits to achieve long-term goals. It is delivered by health professionals like dietitians and exercise physiologists.

We deeply appreciate your support as we strive to create a brighter future where diabetes can do no harm and have made it easy for you to share information about the Life! program on your social media and other channels.

As mothers, we all want to be healthy and have the energy to do the things we love, whether that is keeping up with a young family or supporting our children to have the best start to life.  

Sometimes, taking the first steps to improving our health can feel overwhelming without the right support. The Life! program can help.  

If you have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes during a previous pregnancy, you are automatically eligible.
