Given the increasing prevalence of obesity and lifestyle related chronic disease in the United States and specifically the State of Maine, attention to distinct life phases have emerged as opportune times to initiate interventions geared to reducing obesity. Women in the childbearing years are an important group for intervention to prevent weight retention postpartum and subsequent higher risk for later life obesity as well as initiating healthy behaviors for the family. This intervention program is described with focus on education of providers and the potential impact of reduced weight retention in women of childbearing age. The sample participants for this Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) pilot study include providers, registered nurses and medical assistants and ultimately women of childbearing age. Data were collected through a pre-test post-test format. An informational program was presented between pre and post-test. A retrospective qualitative questionnaire was provided in the form of a phone interview to assess patient perception of provider teaching and knowledge distributed to patients. In addition to the above data collection, a total of 183 charts were assessed for provider education to the woman attending her annual exam over the eight weeks of the pilot study to assess provider education to non-pregnant women. This pilot study demonstrates the importance of education by the provider in a small group of postpartum women. In addition, this study demonstrated that enhanced knowledge for providers on the importance education accept obesity, weight management and physical activity had on women. Increased education for providers may improve the numbers of women receiving education thereby potentially reducing chronic health conditions.
