Healthy weight gain (for underweight) A boon for
underweight moms

    even after the delivery phase. Due to the
    hormonal influence, weight gain can happen as a
    side effect to the vitamins, food craving and the
    water gain.

    pre-pregnancy level, weight gain has been a
    bang-on. Body mass index for these groups of

Extra-Weight gain (over-weight) A disaster for
the motherhood
  • Extra weight gain usually happens in the case of
    healthy motherhood phase, whether the
    mother-to-be herself is beyond the BMI suggested
    weight, i.e. obese. Obesity in generally terms
    isnt as healthy as of being in suggested BMI
    range.

    women face many medical complications such as
    high blood pressure, diabetes, diets could
    probably change according to the weight gain and

  • According to medical researches and surveys,
    obese pregnant ladies have faced quite a few
    complications during the last semester of the
    pregnancy.

  • Usually issues were a prolonged labor or increase
    in difficulty level of pushing the baby out which
    leads to caesarean method, i.e., operating the
    baby surgically.

  • Obesity in the phase of pregnancy can be equally
    dangerous to both mother and the baby. Doctors
    and researchers have suggested that the obese
    mothers can take up few yoga classes or a healthy
    diet to reduce weight without affecting the
    nutrition intake for the baby. In few cases,
    obesity can also cause pre-mature deliveries.

    for a longer duration than the birth of the
    child. Based on surveys, many surgically operated
    mums have constantly complained about abdominal
    pains, back aches as the side effects of the
    obesity during pregnancy.

  • Weight gain during pregnancy cannot be avoided
    but maintenance of the weight gain can be done
    effectively and efficiently. Based on your
    pregnancy BMI, pregnant mums are suggested to
    take up activities for a healthier baby and ease
    of delivery procedures.
