Based on the results (underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese), the tool provides recommendations (including a chart for each result category) and information on the amount of weight to gain during pregnancy, the importance of gaining the amount recommended, how to get to a healthy weight before or between pregnancies, and additional resources.
