Study Summary

This trial will study the effects of a lifestyle program on pregnant women with obesity. The program is designed to help with weight maintenance and fat loss, and researchers will track changes in weight, fat mass, cardiometabolic risk factors, and safety measures like fetal and neonatal growth. They will also study the factors that affect how well the program works, and whether the fat loss leads to better obstetrical outcomes.

Eligible Conditions
  • Obesity
  • Gestational Weight Gain
