Metabolism during Pregnancy: What Happens?
Metabolism changes greatly during pregnancy, and the way it changes can be different for each woman. Despite an increased need for calories, excessive gestational weight gain still affects many women, contributing to adverse maternal and child health outcomes. Extensive research has shown that real-time tracking of health parameters may improve prenatal health.
To better understand how pregnancy and metabolism are related, the Breezing Metabolism Team is working with The Human Placenta Project, a collaborative research effort launched by the NICHD to study the role of the placenta in health and disease.
