Well in case a woman is expecting to be a mother, it is better that she should be healthy, instead of being overweight. Findings in a recent study have claimed that going to be mother, who are overweight are more likely to put their unborn babies' health at risk.
Women who were not categorized under the category of obese women, but were fat while they were pregnant, were 65% likely to give birth to a baby that is very large. And in case, the woman is obese, then the risk increased by two-and-a-half times more.
The study has tried to highlight the threats that both the mother and even the unborn baby poses, in case the mother is obese or overweight during her pregnancy.
The study included about 10,000 mothers from Kaiser Permanente Southern California, who did not suffer gestational diabetes. However, those of who were fat, while expecting a baby, were at high chances of giving birth to a large baby.
Statistical reports suggest that 65% of overweight women were more likely to give birth to heavier babies and in case of obese women, 163% of women were more likely to give birth to such large babies.
