Abstract

Overweight and obesity vary in prevalence among particular groups, and are especially problematic for childbearing Hispanic women. The complex interaction between physical changes associated with pregnancy, role changes accompanying birth, and family and cultural values related to childbearing are superimposed upon the underlying mechanisms that create or perpetuate obesity. In this article we review biological and behavioral research on obesity in postpartum Hispanic women to identify critical components for intervention studies focused on weight management. Recommendations are offered for health care providers and researchers.
