approximately, 50% of them are either overweight [body mass index (BMI)
25-29.9 kg/m(2)] or obese (BMI ≥ 30 kg/m(2)). In the study to evaluate the effects of dietary and lifestyle interventions in pregnancy
on maternal and fetal weight and to quantify the effects of these
interventions on obstetric outcomes, by the Women's Health Research Unit, Centre for Primary Care and Public Health,
Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary
University of London, and posted in PubMed, found that dietary and lifestyle interventions in pregnancy can reduce maternal
gestational weight gain and improve outcomes for both mother and baby.

are associated with reductions in maternal gestational weight gain and
improved obstetric outcomes.
