The data collected includes maternal socio-demographics as well as maternal health indicators like pre-pregnancy weight status, maternal weight gain, anemia, parity, inter-pregnancy interval, diabetes and hypertension in pregnancy. Data are also collected on maternal behaviors including smoking and drinking during pregnancy, medical care, WIC enrollment, and multivitamin consumption. as well as breast feeding initiation.
