STUDY SCHEDULE SUMMARY


If you participate in the Expecting Success Study, you will complete 3 clinic visits during your pregnancy. Upon study enrollment, you will be randomly assigned into 1 of 3 groups: SmartMoms-Phone, SmartMoms-Clinic or Physician Directed. Each of these groups requires different time commitments in addition to your 3 clinic visits while pregnant (see "Intervention"). After your baby is born, you and your baby will both complete 3 clinic visits.
