Scientists from Korolev University in Belfast conducted a study that showed that overweight during pregnancy provokes diseases in mother and baby, and also increases the level of stillbirths.

The researchers analyzed information about 30298 pregnant women in the period from 2004 to 2011. In the group there were 2.8% of women with underweight, 52.2% with normal weight, 27.8% with increased weight, 11% of women had grade 1 obesity, 3.9% had grade 2, and 1 9% - obesity 3 degrees.

The results of the experiment showed that pregnant women with overweight and obesity 1 degree had a rather high risk of developing high blood pressure, diabetes of pregnant women, postpartum hemorrhages, and they also had more frequent births of babies with a high body weight.

In cases of obese women, it was often necessary to induce artificial labor or to do a cesarean section. All risks during pregnancy and childbirth increased 2-4 times with an increase in the degree of obesity.

Among women with obesity group 3, adverse outcomes of labor, preterm labor, stillbirth, and problems with breastfeeding were most common.

Valeria Holmes, one of the authors of the study, says: "This large-scale study clearly shows that overweight or obesity during pregnancy increases the risk of an adverse pregnancy outcome for both the mother and the baby."
