3 to 6 months to lose weight gained in pregnancy is normal

Kilos often melt away by themselves but there is no guarantee

Gaining weight in pregnancy is not only normal, it is necessary. The mother's body has to nourish the growing baby. Her body needs to take on more fluid to support the extra circulation the placenta and baby need. Some of this added weight will usually be lost as soon as the baby is born. "Often, the extra effort women have to make to look after a new baby and breastfeed after giving birth means the kilos just melt away without effort," according to the Institute's Director, Professor Peter Sawicki. "But for about half of all women, the weight will not go away as quickly."

"Eating for two" in pregnancy can cause problems if you are overweight

The Institute analysed recent evidence and new US national guidelines on weight gain in pregnancy, and the message is clear: women who have become overweight or more overweight during pregnancy have a higher chance of ongoing weight problems if they are not back to a normal weight within six months or a year after having a baby.

"Avoiding weight problems after birth means already being careful about balanced and healthy eating during pregnancy," says Professor Sawicki. "It is not a good idea to 'eat for two' in pregnancy and forget about your weight until after the baby is born if you are at all overweight or prone to overweight already. Women need to eat well enough for themselves and their baby, but pregnancy is not a time to overeat."

A lot of exercise in the weeks after birth will not necessarily help
