ABSTRACT
The article presents a study investigating the effectiveness of behavioral interventions to prevent excessive weight gain in pregnancy and also exploring the factors that have an impact on intervention effectiveness. The study found that there was no statistically significant effect on weight gain during pregnancy despite intense and often tailored interventions. Multiple types of interventions are required to address this complex health problem.
