Weight gain

During pregnancy a woman of normal weight will usually gain between 25-35 pounds. If you are overweight to begin with we recommend a weight gain of 15-25 pounds and if you are obese, 10 to 15 pounds.


Gaining too much weight can lead to complications such as gestational diabetes, a large baby and an increased risk for cesarean section or birth injury. We can assist you with a recommended diet for this special time.
