Baby planning: Worried about your weight?


Ideally you should be of normal weight (in accordance with your height), from a few months before you start trying for a baby. If you are over- or under- weight, you must consult a doctor as it can have implications on your upcoming pregnancy.

Being overweight can cause complications like pre-eclampsia (a dangerous condition of high blood, protein in the urine and fluid retention which can affect pregnant women).

Being underweight increases the risk of a stillbirth (a baby born after 24 weeks of pregnancy and not showing any signs of life) or low birth-weight baby.
