New guidelines to fight obesity in pregnancy issued
Date:5/28/2009

>Fetal and neonatal death
  • Having certain birth defects, especially neural tube defects
  • Needing special care in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
  • Being obese in childhood

    Preterm birth is a serious health problem that costs the United States more than $26 billion annually, according to the IOM. It is the leading cause of newborn death and babies who survive an early birth often face the risk of lifetime health challenges, such as breathing problems, mental retardation and others. Even babies born just a few weeks too soon (34-36 weeks gestation, also known as late preterm birth) have higher rates of death and disability than full-term babies.

    The new IOM report also added rates for the amount of weight a woman should gain in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy a pound a week for underweight and normal weight women and about a half-pound for overweight and obese women.

    The March of Dimes, along with other national organizations concerned with maternal and infant health, co-sponsored the IOM study.
