The research team, from the Harvard School of Public Health and the US National Institute of Child Health and Human Development studied the medical records of 13,475 women over the course of ten years.

The research team was reported as commenting: "The key to a healthy pregnancy is seeking good medical care and having a healthy lifestyle before and during pregnancy. This includes eating a variety of foods and beverages in moderation along with getting regular physical activity."
