How many kilos should a woman gain during pregnancy?

By Andrea Rodrigo B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 05/11/2022

There is no exact weight gain, each woman's body is different, and each pregnancy is a unique situation and cannot be generalized.

In order to tell a woman how many kilos she should gain during pregnancy, specialized nutritionists must take into account different factors, such as the woman's weight before becoming pregnant, possible fluid retention and the type of food eaten during the nine months of pregnancy.
