Mediterranean diet or mindfulness during pregnancy reduces by one third the risk of a low birth weight baby
Barcelona, 7 December 2021
- A clinical trial for pregnant women at high risk of a low birth weight baby demonstrates for the first time that Mediterranean diet or mindfulness-based stress reduction interventions during pregnancy reduce the prevalence of low birth weight by 29-36% as well as other complications of pregnancy, for which no treatment had been identified until today.
- The study, published in JAMA, was coordinated with the support of the ”la Caixa” Foundation by researchers from BCNatal (Hospital Clínic-IDIBAPS and Hospital Sant Joan de Déu) and from the University of Barcelona.
