Nutrition in pregnancy

, : Nutrition in pregnancy. Lancet 1(8334): 1142-1143

The views published in the 1983 proceedings of a British study group on nutrition in pregnancy are discussed. The text contained papers by experts from England, Ireland, and the US in the 4 areas of nutritional requirements, undernutrition, special aspects, and overnutrition. The text was rated unsatisfactory as a guide to good practice since the study group participants disagreed on several important issues (e.g., optimal weight gain; appropriateness of RDA increases for energy, protein, and micronutrients; maternal storage of protein). There was general agreement that maternal undernutrition depresses birthweight, that nutritional supplementation can prevent this, and that supplemental iron should not be given throughout the entire period of pregnancy. The role of nutrition in congenital malformation and the clinical and metabolic effects of obesity on mother and fetus are discussed in detail. (wz)
