Abstract

Maternal obesity has become a serious public health issue within Australia and throughout the world, and contributes to increased morbidity and mortality for both mother and child. Despite this, pregnancy has been identified as a time where many women are motivated to be healthy not only for themselves but their unborn baby as well. There is a paucity of evidence about where obese pregnant women obtain pregnancy-related nutrition advice. This study aimed to investigate the avenues used by women with a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2 to access nutrition and dietary information during pregnancy.
