Abstract

Lifestyle changes over the last two decades have led to an increase in pregnancy-related complications due to metabolic factors. It is therefore important to examine interventions that can ameliorate this situation. The objective of this chapter is to examine the effects of probiotics on metabolic parameters in normal pregnant women and in those with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), through a metaanalysis of pertinent randomized control trials.
