How the weight of the expectant mother affects the obesity of the baby: experts said
Researchers told how extra kilograms of the expectant mother can affect obesity in a child.
Academics from the University of Newcastle in the UK were able to establish a link between the obesity of a woman before conception and an increased chance of gaining extra pounds from a baby.
As a result, it turned out that if a woman did not monitor her weight before conception, then it is likely that the child will be prone to obesity.
Scientists have made this conclusion based on 79 observational studies.
Obesity and overweight are the most serious health problems of modern humanity.
