Study finds low weight gain in pregnant women reduces male fetal survival (12/19/2014)

Study finds low weight gain in pregnant women reduces male fetal survivalThe amount of weight a woman gains during pregnancy can be vitally important -- especially if she's carrying a boy -- according to a study by the University of Georgia released today in PLOS ONE.
