A health care professionals guide to supporting healthy pregnancy weight gain online training program

Unhealthy weight is now a very common problem in pregnancy. Many women enter pregnancy above a healthy weight, with weight gain outside of recommendations more common than weight gain within recommendations during pregnancy.

Evidence suggests that addressing the issue of weight can be difficult for health professionals caring for pregnant women due to sensitivities around weight, and a lack of knowledge and confidence about how best to support women.
