Overweight and obese women who lost weight or gained 5 kilograms or less during pregnancy had an increased likelihood of having small for gestational age infants, a study says. Newborns born to these women also had substantially lower lean body mass, fat mass, head circumference and length compared with babies whose mothers gained adequate pregnancy weight. The findings appear in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology.
