Obesity and Obstetrics, Second Edition, brings together experts to examine the issues and challenges of obesity and obstetrics, also discussing how obesity affects fertility, reproduction and pregnancy. Beginning with the worldwide epidemic of obesity, chapters then go on to review obesity and hyperglycemia of pregnancy, management of labor, interventions to improve care during pregnancy, and long-term impact of maternal obesity.

  • Provides an essential reference on the significant risk of complications during pregnancy, including early pregnancy loss, recurrent miscarriage and fetal developmental abnormalities
  • Builds foundational knowledge on how maternal obesity predisposes offspring to obesity, highlighting that the prevention of childhood obesity begins during pregnancy
  • Assembles critically evaluated chapters focused on obesity and obstetrics to meet the practical needs of obstetricians, endocrinologists and general practitioners
