Fit Minded Mommas (FMM)

The "Fit-Minded Mamas (Madres Saludables)" study was designed for both English- and Spanish- speaking women at all stages of pregnancy or less than six months postpartum living in the Harrisonburg-Rockingham county area. Participants visited the Human Performance Lab in Godwin Hall on JMU's campus for one morning testing session. The session included completing a questionnaire packet and giving a blood sample. Participants were given a pedometer and log book for two weeks of recording daily step counts - upon completion women received free reading materials covering a variety of pregnancy-related topics such as nutrition, cardiovascular/strength training, and breastfeeding. Over the course of the study period, investigators tracked trimester- specific diabetes and cardiovascular disease risk status along with volume of physical activity as the research topics for two Masters Theses.
