  1. Biosocial predictors of maternal weight near term among low-income black and Hispanic women.

    Article - En anglais

    This study used biosocial data to develop and test models for predicting at mid-gestation those women among a target group of 150 low-income black and Hispanic women who were at risk for poor weight gain.

    Forty percent had near term weights <120% of their standard pregravid weight-for-height (W/H) and 26.0% delivered infants weighing <3000 g. Among black women, low maternal W/H near term was related to maternal W/H at 20+-2 wk gestation (p=<0.001), employment (p=0.001), and maternal height (p=0.047).
