ACOG Updates Guidelines on Prenatal Obesity, Exercise

Two new guidelines from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) emphasize the need for exercise during pregnancy and the post-postpartum period to prevent or correct maternal weight issues.

.

Practice Bulletin Number 156, "Obesity in Pregnancy," and Committee Opinion Number 650, "Physical Activity and Exercise During Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period," appear in the December issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology. Together, the documents address the clinical management of overweight and obese women before and during pregnancy, and the need for women to exercise regularly to prevent or correct overweight or obesity.

.

More than half of all women of childbearing age in the United States are overweight or obese, the group writes, and obesity in pregnancy is associated with significant and extensive risks for both the mother and her fetus.

.

Even Small Preconception Weight Loss Improves Pregnancy Outcomes

.

"Optimal control of obesity begins before conception," the practice bulletin authors write. "Weight loss before pregnancy, achieved by surgical or nonsurgical methods, has been shown to be the most effective intervention to improve medical comorbidities. Obese women who have even small weight reductions before pregnancy may have improved pregnancy outcomes."

.

Lead author Patrick M. Catalano, MD, from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and Metro Health, both in Cleveland, Ohio, said in an ACOG news release. "Ob-gyns are often the only physician women see on a regular basis, therefore we are in the optimal position to help educate women on the importance of fighting obesity."
