dc.description.abstract The Healthy Mums and Babies (HUMBA) trial was developed in response to an external review of maternity care in South Auckland, New Zealand. The review highlighted the contribution of obesity to the high perinatal mortality rate in the region especially among Pacific women. Obesity and excessive gestational weight gain increase risks of numerous pregnancy complications for the mother and the offspring as well as the risk of long term health problems for both. HUMBA is a two by two factorial randomised controlled demonstration trial, aiming to reduce excessive gestational weight gain in the mother, optimise infant birthweight and improve maternal glucose metabolism. The study will recruit 220 women with BMI≥30 and singleton pregnancy at 120-176 weeks’ gestation. Women with diabetes, previous bariatric surgery, taking probiotics or tablets affecting appetite and glucose metabolism will be excluded. Consenting participants are randomised via a web-based protocol, to receive 1) a nutritional intervention or routine care, and 2) either an oral probiotic or placebo capsule. Nutritional intervention includes four face-to-face visits provided by community health workers trained in pregnancy nutrition, and supporting text messages. Participants with routine care will receive best practice pregnancy nutrition pamphlets from the New Zealand Ministry of Health. Probiotic capsules contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and Bifidobacterium lactis BB12, 7x109 colony-forming units per capsule. Probiotic and placebo capsules are prescribed one per day from recruitment until birth in a double blinded fashion. One hundred and ninety women are recruited to date. Data on recruitment and participant demographics will be presented. en
