The purpose of this project was to create a 6-week nutrition and physical activity curriculum for pregnant women. Specifically, this project provides education regarding an overview of a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy: appropriate weight gain; optimal nutrition including food and environmental safety as well as meal plans; vitamin and mineral supplementation; breastfeeding; physical activity guidelines; and post-partum weight loss guidelines.
The nutrition and physical activity curriculum was created for various women's outreach groups such as community centers, prenatal or breastfeeding training programs, or the Women's Infants and Children program.
The curriculum was designed in 2 parts. First, the health educator is provided with in-depth information about the 6 curriculum topics. Second, pregnant women are educated by PowerPoint slides, hands-on activities, and worksheets. An expert panel reviewed the curriculum and modifications were made based on their suggestions.
