Mediterranean diet or mindfulness during pregnancy reduces by one third the risk of a low birth weight baby



30 segundos de lectura

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.
