Obese Black Women at Higher Risk for Having Very Large Babies
Date:2/14/2013

th a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 should gain 25 to 35 pounds.
  • Overweight women with a BMI of 25 to 29.9 should gain 15 to 25 pounds.
  • Obese women with a BMI of 30 or more should gain 11 to 20 pounds.
  • It may be that excess weight gain before or during pregnancy leads to greater maternal glucose concentrations and insulin resistance, which can increase the risk for large babies, according to the release. Weight gain around the waist is also linked to glucose and insulin metabolic changes.

    The study was published online in the journal Obesity. While it found a link between obesity in black women and abnormally large babies, it did not show a cause-and-effect relationship.
