Obesity Is The Biggest Enemy For A Pregnant Lady
According to a fresh report being revealed by the Australasian Maternity Outcomes Surveillance System (AMOSS), it has been revealed that obese pregnant women face birth risks. Australian and New Zealand women, who weigh more than 140 kg, can suffer problems of gestational diabetes and caesarean section deliveries.
The data has raised concerns as obesity has become one of major diseases in the western countries. The data revealed that at least 750 women in Australia and New Zealand are extremely fat and they suffer from a high risk of being diagnosed with major health problems.
It should be noted that normal BMI is in between 20 and 25. The findings of the same were presented at the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) conference, which was held in Perth.
The data has found that obese women double their risk of having children through caesarean section, as a normal delivery can increase their blood pressure and further causes other problems. In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers assessed 370 Australian women.
It was found that 52% of them had their babies through caesarean method as they were extremely morbidly obese pregnant women. "Obesity is known to be a significant risk factor for maternal mortality”, said AMOSS Investigator Nolan McDonnell.
