INTRODUCTION: The establishment of the neonatal gut microbiome is a crucial step that may have lifelong health implications. We aimed to systematically review evidence on maternal probiotic supplementation during pregnancy and vertical transfer of the corresponding strain to the infant gut. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medline, CINAHL, Embase, Web of Science and OVID, from inception to September 2018. Studies of maternal probiotic supplementation for a minimum of 2 weeks' duration and analyses of neona...

Background. The growth of the fetus is a complex process influenced by multiple factors. Studies have highlighted the important role of biochemical growth markers such as leptin and adiponectin on fetal growth. Objective. To compare fetal growth trajectories with biochemical growth markers from maternal blood samples at 28 weeks’ gestation, cord blood samples at birth, and in child blood samples at 5 years of age from mother-infant pairs who were part of the longitudinal ROLO study. Methods. 781...

Large for gestational age (LGA) births are associated with many maternal and perinatal complications. As overweight and obesity are risk factors for LGA, we aimed to predict LGA in overweight and obese women at approximately 20 gestational weeks, so that we can identify women at risk of LGA early to allow for appropriate interventions. A random forest algorithm was applied to maternal characteristics and blood biomarkers at baseline and 20 gestational weeks' ultrasound scan findings to develop a...

OBJECTIVE To gain insights from pregnant women and obstetricians on the utility of the FIGO Nutrition Checklist in antenatal practice. METHODS Women were recruited from the antenatal department of a large tertiary-level university maternity hospital in Dublin, Ireland, between October and December 2019. Participants completed the FIGO Nutrition Checklist before their routine antenatal appointment. Obstetricians and women were encouraged to discuss the FIGO Nutrition Checklist during the clinical...

OBJECTIVE To gain an in-depth understanding of how the FIGO Nutrition Checklist could work in clinical practice, from the perspective of pregnant women. METHODS This qualitative study was part of a pilot study of the FIGO Nutrition Checklist in the antenatal department of a tertiary-level university maternity hospital in Dublin, Ireland. Individual semistructured phone interviews were conducted with pregnant women who had completed the FIGO Nutrition Checklist as part of the pilot. Interviews we...

Objective To examine prevalence, risk factors, and consequences of maternal obesity; and provide evidence on current policies and programs to manage maternal obesity in India. Methods This is a mixed-methods study. We analyzed the National Family Health Survey (NFHS)-4 data (2015-16) to estimate the prevalence and risk factors of obesity, followed by a desk review of literature and stakeholder mapping with interviews to develop policy guidance.

Background: Fetal exposure to a suboptimal maternal diet might affect respiratory health later in life. We tested the hypothesis that a pro-inflammatory or low-quality maternal diet in pregnancy was associated with child’s respiratory health. Methods: We performed an individual participant meta-analysis among 18,326 children and their mothers, participating in seven European birth cohorts. Maternal pro-inflammatory diet during pregnancy was estimated by the energy-adjusted Dietary Inflammatory I...
