Effect of change in dietary quality in pregnancy on maternal nutritional status and birth size: a randomised controlled nutrition intervention study, Mangochi, Malawi

 Inadequate nutrition during pregnancy contributes to reduced maternal weight gain, restricted fetal growth and increased risk of low birth weight (2). Interventions such as micronutrient or food supplementation and nutrition education or counselling have been carried out in different parts of the world to help improve nutrition of pregnant women. This study aims at evaluating effectiveness of a diet counselling intervention on nutritional status of pregnant women and birth outcomes. This study will be carried out as part of a randomised controlled trial examining the effect of dietary counselling during pregnancy on maternal nutrition status and birth outcome in rural Mangochi, Malawi.

This is a masters degree project under the program called Master in International Community Health
