The Healthy Early Life Moments in Singapore (HELMS) programme by KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) is a research study which aims to optimise the metabolic health and mental wellness of women, to:
Lower the risk of premature delivery and developing hypertension and diabetes
Promote the healthy growth of the child
HELMS supports women who are planning to conceive, aged between 21 and 40 years, and with a BMI of 25 to 40 kg/m2, through an integrated maternal-child care plan from preconception, throughout pregnancy and for the first 18 months after delivery.
We invite general practitioners to refer interested patients to join HELMS.
GPs can click here or contact the study team to find out more about the programme and the eligibility criteria.
