PhD project: Conversations in a telecoaching intervention between health coaches and pregnant women at risk of developing gestational diabetes. The project is part of a Horizon 2020 project (Impact Bump 2 Baby and Me) and takes place in four countries (Australia, Spain, England, Ireland). The purpose of my project is the identification of patterns in the interactional behavior of health coaches in the meeting with the pregnant women, which may be related to successful behavior change. The hypothesis is that the conscious and unconscious interactional behavior of the professionals influences the womens successful lifestyle changes, and that dropouts possibly are related to the lack of interactional mentalising behaviour.
