Summary

This trial is testing whether an evidence-based intervention can help prevent excessive weight gain during and after pregnancy, when delivered through a national home visiting organization. If successful, the intervention could have a significant impact on obesity and related chronic diseases.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for pregnant women aged 18-45 who are overweight or obese, speak English or Spanish, and are willing to participate in a program called Parents as Teachers (PAT) until their baby turns one. They must not plan another pregnancy before their current baby's first birthday and should be able to engage in walking.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests the HEALTH-P2 intervention aimed at preventing excessive weight gain during pregnancy through the first year postpartum. It compares this with usual care and assesses how well it works when applied by PAT, focusing on outcomes like obesity prevention and chronic disease impact.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves lifestyle interventions rather than medications, side effects may include typical exercise-related issues such as muscle soreness or fatigue but will vary based on individual health conditions.
