The Pregnancy TEC conducted systematic reviews that examined the relationship between dietary patterns before and during pregnancy, and maternal and birth outcomes. Dietary patterns were defined as the quantities, proportions, variety or combinations of different foods and beverages in diets, and the frequency with which they are habitually consumed.
For information on the Pregnancy and Birth to 24 Months Project, see the Pregnancy and Birth to 24 Months Project Page.
For information on the methodology that NESR used for this systematic review project, see the Pregnancy and Birth to 24 Months Project Methodology Page.
Every full systematic review contains the systematic review question, literature selection criteria (inclusion/exclusion criteria), literature search strategies, lists of included and excluded studies (with rationale), a description and synthesis of the evidence, data tables, graded conclusion statements, and research recommendations. In addition, both a technical abstract and plain language summary are provided for each of the systematic reviews.
