Is there any risk if an overweight woman plans to conceive?

Q: What should be the weight of a woman of age 24 years at the time of pregnancy. Is there any risk factor if the woman is overweight?

A:The ideal body weight depends on the height of the person. I am not sure if the information you provided is about you or your wife. Generally speaking obesity causes difficulty with conception sometimes. Sometimes depending on the extent of overweight women can develop gestational diabetes which, if not controlled, can cause problems with the pregnancy, childbirth and the baby. If you are concerned about all these issues, you may consider a pre-conception visit with your obstetrician.
