  • Overweight condition and healthy pregnancy: According to a new study recently published in the  journal JAMA, even a modest increase in a woman’s pre-pregnancy weight raises the risks of fetal death, stillbirth and infant death. Since more and more women deal with obesity, which these days affects about thirty six percent of women of childbearing age, the condition also carries complications with conception, healthy pregnancy, labor and delivery. Among these complications are gestational diabetes, hypertension, pre-eclampsia, miscarriage, premature birth, emergency cesarean delivery, stillbirth and other. Babies of obese women are more likely to have congenital defects, they are at greater risk of dying during or soon after birth, and they are more likely to develop hypertension and obesity as adults, if they survive. Those are all reasons for many gynecologists and obstetrics doctors to refuse care for obese pregnant women. But as Dr. Sigal Klipstein, chairwoman of the committee on ethics of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, states: “Doctors should push aside prejudice and fear, and should take more positive steps to treat obese women who are pregnant or want to become pregnant.” Dr. Klipstein and her colleagues recently issued a Report on ethical issues in caring for obese women. Although obesity is often seen as a personal failure that could be prevented or reversed through motivation and willpower, the facts stated in this report indicate otherwise.
