Summary: For healthy women with singleton pregnancies, a practice of measuring weight only at the start of care and at 36 weeks (plus appropriate education regarding gestational weight gain guidelines) does not appear to be associated with any difference in maternal weight gain or maternal or neonatal morbidity compared to a practice of routine weight measurement at every prenatal visit.
