Maternal weight gains in ideal twin outcomes

, : Maternal weight gains in ideal twin outcomes. Journal of the American Dietetic Association 96(2): 178-181

The association between maternal factors, including pregravid weight and gestational weight gain, and optimal outcome for twin pregnancies was investigated. A field survey of maternal nutrition and the childhood growth of twins supported previous studies that outlined the importance of length of gestation, maternal pregravid weight, smoking, and gestational weight gain on twin birth weight. In terms of weight gain, the women in this study were advised to gain an average of 30 lb, but actual gains averaged between 40 and 45 lb. The recommended range of maternal weight gain of 35-45 lb was not significantly correlated with the optimal twin outcome but gains of at least 35 lb and more than 45 lb were.
