  • Location of body tat stores, as indicated by waist-to-hip circumference ratio (WHR), affects a variety of metabolic processes in women, and some of these changes could affect fetal growth during pregnancy. We tested the hypothesis that WHR affects fetal growth among 702 participants of the Diana Project, a prospective study designed to identify preconceptual exposures related to reproductive outcomes. We tested the effect of maternal WHR on the outcomes of infant birth-weight, length, and head… CONTINUE READING
