New support for weight management during pregnancy

Posted:  Tuesday, October 15, 2013

The amount of weight a woman gains during pregnancy can have an impact on her, and her unborn child’s, health. Gaining too much or too little weight can have serious and lasting implications, especially for the child.

To help mothers and those caring for pregnant women manage weight gain during this important time, the U.S. Institute of Medicine has launched a new toolkit, supported by a webinar. 

The comprehensive toolkit includes an interactive website, weight gain guidelines, myths and facts, videos, a podcast, a poster and much more.
