Obesity in pregnancy carries with it some increased risks for both the mother and her developing baby. Because of this, if a woman is obese and planning to become pregnant, the best thing she can do is make a preconception visit to her obstetric provider. There, a plan can be made to optimize her health before she becomes pregnant. This may include making a healthy weight loss plan, screening for diabetes or high blood pressure, and ensuring that she has appropriate weight gain during her pregnancy.
