Risk And Benefits Of Weight Loss Surgery Before Pregnancy


What are the risks for having weight loss
surgery and then getting pregnant? New research is weighing in. I’m Lindsay Liepman with your
latest health news. There are several different types of weight loss surgery, also known as
bariatric surgery. All of the options decrease the size of the stomach and/or limit the ability
of the intestines to absorb nutrients. According to a new study, women who became pregnant
after weight loss surgery, were less likely to have gestational diabetes or to have extra
large babies. But the news isn’t all positive. These women were also more likely to deliver
early and to have babies who were smaller than average. Researchers suggest women who
become pregnant after bariatric surgery, should be carefully monitored.
