Study examines effects of pre-pregnancy weight, weight gain during pregnancy and gestational diabetes on infant birth weight Among pregnant women who did not develop gestational diabetes, overweight women were 65 percent more likely, and obese women 163 percent more likely, to have overly large babies than their healthy weight counterparts. In this study, an overly large infant was identified based on having a birth weight over the 90th percentile for their gestational age at delivery and...

19 percent of stillbirths occur in fetuses under the 10th percentile of weight The tiniest and the heaviest fetuses are at much higher risk of being stillborn than those of average weight, new research has found. Fetuses who are "severely small for gestational age," or weigh below the bottom one percentile of all fetuses, disproportionately account for about six per cent of all stillbirths, according to researchers at St. Michael's Hospital. Fetuses that are "severely large for...

Increases risk of complications during delivery Excess weight in pregnant women, both before pregnancy and gained during pregnancy, is the main predictor of whether mothers will have larger than average babies, which can result in increased risk of cesarean section or trauma during delivery, states a study published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal). Women with diabetes in pregnancy or gestational diabetes are at increased risk of having a large-for-gestational-age baby....
