Published: 29 January 2020
...Andrea M. Tilstra; Ryan K. Masters Abstract Birth weight in the United States declined substantially during the 1990s and 2000s.

This effect is focused on the first trimester of gestation, and it is mediated by reduced gestational age rather than by factors affecting the intrauterine growth of term infants.
