The 5As of Healthy Pregnancy Weight Gain Toolkit is intended to help primary care practitioners discuss and manage gestational weight with their patients. The 5As (Ask, Assess, Advise, Agree, and Assist) framework ensures sensitive, realistic, measurable, and sustainable obesity management strategies that focus on improving health and well-being, rather than simply aiming for numbers on a scale.
This is a free short online continuing medical education course designed for family physicians, midwives, nurse practitioners, obstetricians, and dietitians offering antenatal care in Canada. This course will introduce you to an office-based framework to help you discuss and manage gestational weight gain with your patients.
