Journal of pregnancy is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, and clinical studies related to all aspects of pregnancy and childbirth the journal welcomes submissions on breastfeeding, labor, maternal health and the biomedical aspects of pregnancy. Additionally, the intervention programs studied have shown that weight management during pregnancy is safe for women with a bmi ⩾ 26 kg/m 2, therefore a review of present uk and iom guidelines should be considered with the view to limiting gwg.

Importantly, there was one study reporting the effect of antenatal interventions on postpartum weight retention at 12 months, ideally, follow up should be of longer duration, with most similar weight management studies in the non‐pregnant population recommending assessment at least 12 months after the cessation of the intervention 4.
Antenatal interventions for overweight or obese pregnant women: a systematic review of randomised trials jm dodd umi nursheila nur ibrahim and sohinee bhattacharya, are antenatal weight management interventions effective in preventing pre-eclampsia systematic review of randomised control trials, pregnancy hypertension. Inadequate and often contradictory information regarding healthy weight management was reported by women in qualitative studies and this was addressed in the interventions but this in itself was insufficient to lead to reduced weight gain multiple types of interventions, including community based strategies are needed to address this complex health problem.
This included a meta-analysis of controlled trials of diet and physical activity interventions to prevent excessive weight gain during pregnancy and a thematic synthesis of qualitative studies that investigated the views of women on weight management during pregnancy.

However, recent systematic reviews on weight management in pregnancy have concluded that there is no evidence of the effectiveness of dietary 4 and/or physical activity interventions 5 in pregnancy no published study could be found in the literature on providers’ views of interventions to address obesity in pregnancy.
This paper will explore current literature to consider whether antenatal dietary interventions for obese pregnant women are effective at reducing maternal weight gain during pregnancy, thus improving maternal and neonatal outcomes. The economic evaluation undertaken by the national institute for health and clinical excellence on non-pharmacological interventions for weight management outside pregnancy reported that diet based interventions were cheaper than interventions based on physical activity97 with the clear benefit in gestational weight gain observed with dietary interventions in pregnancy, there is a potential for this strategy to be also cost effective compared with other methods.
The magic study (managing weight in pregnancy) sought to examine women’s self-reported experiences of usual-care antenatal weight management in early pregnancy and consider these alongside weight monitoring behaviours and future expectations 193 women (18 yrs+) were recruited from routine antenatal clinics at the nottingham university hospital nhs trust.
