Healthy Weight Gain During Pregnancy
Healthy weight gain is important during pregnancy for the health of the woman and her growing baby. The Healthy Weight Gain During Pregnancy booklet includes information on the benefits of gaining the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy, how to determine the amount of weight a woman should gain during pregnancy, and steps she can take to help her gain a healthy amount of weight. This booklet was developed using current research, and in consultation with Saskatchewan dieticians, nurses, and other healthcare providers, as well as First Nations women. The goal was to produce a resource that is evidence-based and reflects the needs and experiences of First Nations women in Saskatchewan.
