Understanding Weight Changes in Pregnancy and Postpartum

The goal of Understanding Weight Changes in Pregnancy and Postpartum is to advance knowledge of optimal dietary intake and appropriate weight management strategies in pregnant and postpartum women. This will be achieved by conducting a Calorimetry Assessment in Postpartum Women, reviewing and analyzing information already collected from the APrON Study, and conducting an Environmental Scan of nutrition and physical activity interventions to learn about what works, what doesn’t work, and how.
