This article investigates the impact of community-based interventions developed by the Healthy Start Partnership (HSP) to promote healthy body weights in families. Intercept surveys were conducted to monitor community exposure. A nonconcurrent, no treatment control design was used to assess population-level weight outcomes. Control (n = 219) and intervention (n = 276) cohorts of pregnant women were recruited and followed until 6 months postpartum. Data were collected through 2 self-administered questionnaires and medical record audits. Results indicate community residents were exposed to interventions. However, little evidence of positive effects of interventions on weight outcomes was found for mothers or infants.
