Guidelines from the Institute of Medicine's 1990 report call for weight gains during pregnancy that are higher than those previously recommended.
This study examines the potential implications of compliance with these guidelines for postpartum weight retention.
Weight retention 10 to 18 months following delivery was examined for selected women who had live births in the 1988 National Maternal and Infant Health Survey.
Women's actual weight gains during pregnancy were retrospectively classified according to the Institute of Medicine's guidelines.
