New Gestational Weight Gain Recommendations for the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS)

Aims to validate the International Fetal and Newborn Growth Consortium for the 21st century (Intergrowth-21st) standards for gestational weight gain (GWG) and create new recommendations of GWG based on those standards for first trimester normal and overweight women to be used in the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS). GWG recommendations currently used in SUS have not been properly tested or validated, thus the project might improve prenatal nutritional care and reduce post gestational weight retention.
