Clinical director of obstetrics Sue Belgrave supports Scope study results which found that overweight pregnant women face an increased risk of complications such as preeclampsia -- a medical condition which causes high blood pres- sure. The study was carried out with more than 3000 Australian and New Zea- land pregnant women. Other complications include gestational dia- betes, induction of la- bour, pulmonary embol- ism, postpartum hae- morrhage and infection. Overweight women are also more likely to have a caesarean section. Dr Belgrave works at Waitakere and North Shore hospitals and says it s now very common to see pregnant women who are overweight. We see women who were overweight before getting pregnant and those who ve put on a lot of weight during preg- nancy. In some cases they re coming back to have their second baby without having lost the weight from the first. What s concerning is we re seeing it in younger women in their 20s. Everything s more difficult when you re overweight. It can be more difficult to scan and measure the size and weight of the baby and you re less able to give birth normally. Dr Belgrave is con- cerned that overweight mothers are setting their babies up to be over- weight children. This doesn t seem to be widely known. People are often surprised when we talk to them about the risks associated with being overweight in pregnancy. Dr Belgrave says women should gain 10 to 12kg during pregnancy, assuming they start in a healthy weight range. Women who are over- weight to start with don t need to put on that much during pregnancy. The scope study findings were presented by Professor Lesley McCowan at a confer- ence of the Royal Aust- ralian & New Zealand College of Gynae- cologists. Professor McCowan was recog- nised in the New Year s honours list. See www.scopestudy. net.
