Summary

This study will follow pregnant women from pre-conception or early pregnancy to their child's second birthday to find out how the mother's health may influence her child's growth and development.

Description

Over the course of each participant's time in the study, several assessments may be completed at some or all of their study visits, including height, weight, blood pressure, temperature, body composition, blood and urine collection, dietary intake, physical activity, energy expenditure, and psychological assessments. We will also attempt to collect placenta, umbilical cord and cord blood samples at each woman's delivery. We will provide each participant with nutrition counseling and emotional support. These sessions may be individual or group-based and will be provided by licensed and trained professionals.
