Introducing LA MOMS (Los Angeles Managing Obesity in Moms)

In Los Angeles County 1 in 3 women of reproductive age are overweight or obese, affecting a disproportionately high number of Hispanic and African American women. Maternal overweight and obesity are linked to poor birth outcomes and lower breastfeeding rates. LA MOMs will provide new mothers guidance on nutrition, physical activity, breastfeeding and stress reduction, with the goal of reducing obesity among postpartum women in Los Angeles County. To sign up for the LA MOMS newsletter or refer a new mom to the program, please email lamoms@ph.lacounty.gov .
