Nteff, The Impact of Education on Recommended Weight Gain and Selected Prenatal Outcomes in Low Income Pregnant Women, Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vol. Intervention participants received individualized education about nutrition during pregnancy, obesity risks, and IOM weight gain guidelines. Weight gain was plotted on pre-determined BMI weight gain graphs during 4 visits post-intervention for two months. Considering the alarming numbers of overweight or obese persons today, it is no surprise that at the diagnosis of a pregnancy most women are already overweight or obese[14]. Knowledge about nutrition, IOM weight gain guidelines and obesity risks did not result in expected pregnancy weight gain. Maintaining appropriate maternal weight gain during pregnancy may also have a positive impact on health care expenditures since maternal and neonatal complications account for 5.7% of direct healthcare costs, and annual costs of $52 billion[46].


The guidelines are intended to guide weight gain for pregnant women, based upon prenatal BMI measurements, and are clearly focused on that population. Various stakeholders were involved in the revision of the 1990 Pregnancy Weight Gain guidelines and were included in committee work and testing of the newer guidelines.
Graphics provided in the guidelines make it easy to visually monitor weight gain during pregnancy as well as provide an opportunity for even low literacy patients to be able to monitor and track their own weight. However, balancing weight gain needed to produce a healthy normal newborn, without compromising the health of the mother continues to be a challenge since most women are either overweight during pregnancy or obese, and retain more of that weight throughout the postpartumperiod[48],[18]. To accomplish this goal, the recommended pattern of weight gain for a woman of normal pre-pregnant BMI and weight in the first trimester is 1 to 4 pounds and thereafter, about a pound a week until delivery[61],[15],[22],[70].In light of the global epidemic of obesity, weight gain among childbearing women has steadily increased. Pregnancy hormones are anti-insulin, inhibiting tissue glucose transport, and resulting in increased insulin secretion to compensate for the resistance[24].


Subsequent data were collected via prospective chart reviews of the intervention participants to obtain weights, blood pressure, fundal height measurements, and pre-gravid BMIs at subsequent visits. Each participant in the control group was matched to one participant in the intervention group on four categories: age, gestational age at first prenatal care visit, race and pre-pregnant BMI. Three pairs did not match on pre-pregnant BMI categories (pair #12, 15, and 22) but were matched on other criteria.
