Eating a healthy, nutritious diet is especially important if you are pregnant.
Your baby relies on you to provide the right balance of nutrients to help them grow and develop properly even after they are born.
Your weight matters during pregnancy and after and there is no need to eat for two. Most women who are overweight have a straightforward pregnancy and birth and deliver healthy babies. However, being overweight does increase the risk of complications to both you and your baby. We can offer extra care and give you support and information for you to minimise the risks to you and your baby in this pregnancy (and possibly in a future pregnancy).
If you have any questions please ask your midwife.
