Risks to offspring due to maternal high BMI

Pregnancy in a woman with a high BMI is associated with a higher number of obstetric complications, such as gestational diabetes. However, a high BMI in the pregnant woman can also have certain effects on the offspring. Among them, we can mention the following:

  • Obesity.
  • Diabetes.
  • Hypertension.

In addition, the risk of certain congenital anomalies and macrosomia would also be elevated in pregnant women with obesity problems.
