Weight gain and pregnancy? Thoughts?
I am a first-time mom to a seven-month old little girl and throughout my pregnancy and since having my daughter, I've noticed that the issue of weight and weight gain in pregnancy is so controversial. I am also a graduate student in the UCLA Department of Psychology. I am trying to earn my PhD while also staying at home and caring for my baby. Because I have found pregnancy and motherhood to be so transformational, I am actually conducting my doctoral dissertation on experiences of pregnant women and new moms. I am hoping that the results of my study will help benefit health and well-being for women around the country.
