Pregnancy and Labor
- A 2019 systematic review and meta-analysis included 23 cohort studies with a total of 671,906 women with two or more consecutive pregnancies. Interpregnancy weight gain was consistently associated with a higher risk of gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, pregnancy induced hypertension and large-for-gestational age births. In contrast, interpregnancy weight loss was associated with a lower risk of delivering a large-for-gestational age neonate. These findings confirm that interpregnancy weight change affects the risk of perinatal complications in a subsequent pregnancy.1
