Brief description This proposal will comprehensively evaluate the role of maternal overweight and obesity, gestational weight gain, and the effects of antenatal dietary and lifestyle interventions on maternal, infant and childhood health outcomes. Over 50% of pregnant women are overweight or obese, with adverse outcomes for maternal and infant health, both immediately related to pregnancy, and in the longer term. Outcomes from this proposal will inform clinical guidelines and improve practice.
