The objectives of this study were:
- To develop a growth model of fetal weight based on fetal energy expenditure within a population approach modeling framework.
- To quantify required uniform flow of nutrients to the fetus and mammary glands.
- To quantify the effect of nutrient flow on maternal energy metabolism.
