Effects of dietary interventions on neonatal and infant outcomes: a systematic review and meta-analysis
All dietary interventions and those focused on macronutrient intake also increased birth weight (P < 0.01) and length (P < 0.05) and reduced the incidence of low birth weight (P < 0.01). Dietary interventions in low-income countries and underweight or nutritionally at-risk populations increased birth weight (P < 0.05) and reduced the incidence of low birth weight (P = 0.01). No effects were seen for the following other outcomes: placental weight,

106. Effects of dietary interventions on neonatal and infant outcomes: a systematic review and meta-analysis [Forum/Discussion]

Comment: An article of interest to IVF clients and any couple considering pregnancy.
Submission: Using meta-analysis methodology, the study suggests that the risk of a low birth weight birth can be mitigated by improved diet but there was no specific diet that could be recommended. Diet did not appear to influence other pregnancy issues including perinatal mortality. IVF clinics, now practicing in almost every country, probably has a limited duty of care about helping their clients manage their pregnancies but low birthweight continues to be an issue for ART conceptions and every effort needs to be made to normalise this. Perhaps clinics may mention in their information brochures a comment relating diet to pregnancy outcome.
