Pregnant & Overweight

Is It Dangerous To Become Pregnant If I’m Very Overweight?

If you are obese (BMI 30+), then I would advise you to try and lose some weight before becoming pregnant.

To begin with, obesity tends to make it more difficult to conceive. Also being seriously overweight and pregnant increases the risk of diabetes and high blood pressure during pregnancy.

For specific advice about pregnancy and overweight risks, please see your doctor.
