(+26...4) asks if a obese woman becomes pregnant🤰, will it affect the baby?
Unfortunately, yes. When the mother is obese, the pregnancy is at higher risk for both stillbirth and fetal abnormalities😱. The child is also at greater risk for heart disease, hypertension, obesity, and diabetes later in life. Of course, an obese woman could give birth to a perfectly healthy baby - but it is safer both for the mother and the child if she can lose weight before pregnancy.
