Perinatal Forum:  Obesity in Pregnancy

Maternal obesity is associated with complications throughout pregnancy and increased
health risks for both mother and baby. The 2004 CEMACH maternal death enquiry reported
that 35% of all maternal deaths were in obese women. Obesity is also associated with
increased perinatal mortality. The purpose of this Forum is to highlight an urgent public
health problem and to discuss strategies for clinical management and prevention.
