Weight Loss Surgery Could Increase Certain Pregnancy Risks
« on: December 11, 2013, 03:31:45 pm »
Bariatric weight loss surgery can be a good option for people who battle obesity. But new research published in the British Medical Journal suggests that women who undergo this procedure and later become pregnant are more likely to deliver premature or low-birth-weight babies, The New York Times reports.

For the study, Swedish researchers reviewed 15,000 births between 1992 and 2009, including 2,500 babies born to women who had undergone bariatric surgery. (On average, these women delivered about five years after receiving the weight-loss procedure.)

After setting controls for age, smoking and other environmental risk factors, researchers found that about 10 percent of children born to moms who had undergone weight loss surgery were premature, compared with only 6 percent in the nonsurgical group.
