"Nutrition and Lifestyle During Pregnancy"

Here you find an overview of the module on "Nutrition and Lifestyle During Pregnancy", its structure and units, learning aims and information on how to get your CME credits.



This module addresses appropriate maternal nutrition and lifestyle before and during pregnancy and its significance for favorable pregnancy outcomes. Current, international recommendations for adequate nutrient intakes through diet and supplements are addressed. Physiological explanations for nutrient transfer help to deepen understanding as to why appropriate maternal weight gain is so important for infant and maternal health. Similarly, physical activity and lifestyle recommendations are specified along with recommendations for the avoidance of food-borne illnesses. This module focuses especially on the nutrition needs of the mother and fetus during normal pregnancies while also addressing special nutrition and metabolic challenges such as obesity, gestational diabetes and eating disorders.

How to best follow this module

For your own coordination and scheduling: To go through this entire module which contains five units, you will need about 870 minutes (about 150-210 minutes for each unit). Downloading further literature or using our integrated links will take additional time.

Every unit consists of a self-assessment test at the beginning, different lessons and a CME test at the end. During the course of the module, the learner will benefit from a number of learning tools, including self-assessment tests, graphics, expert videos, a discussion forum and an online case-based training.

To make better use of the teaching material and consequently a better learning experience overall, we suggest that the learner first should go through the units, follow by the case-based training and only after that she or he should attempt the CME tests.
