Weight management in pregnancy

Olander, E. K. (2015). Weight management in pregnancy. Nursing in Practice(Septem), pp. 19-24.


Key learning points:
- Women who start pregnancy in an overweight or obese weight category have increased health risks
- Irrespective of pre-pregnancy weight category, there are health risks associated with gaining too much weight in pregnancy for both mother and baby
- There are currently no official weight gain guidelines for pregnancy in the UK, thus focus needs to be on supporting pregnant women to eat healthily and keep active
