Obesity in pregnancy….

Standard

…”probably as harmful as smoking in pregnancy”.

I’ve decided for some awful reason to watch One Born Every Minute: Plus Size Mums.

Terrible idea.

It baffles me that women will slim or loose weight for vanity- usually for their own weddings. Magazines are full of “summer bikini bodies” and “get into that size 10 wedding dress” articles, and yet won’t do it for the safety of themselves and of their babies.

Women on this programme have a BMI of OVER 40. And seem to think it’s a joke.

I’m shocked.

Problems conceiving, diabetes, pre-eclampsia, hemmoraging, high blood pressure, not being able to find babie’s heartbeat or feel movement…… :-S
