In Natural News [dot] com they have an article that basically says that if a mother to be is obese that she is putting health problems from her obesity onto her self and more importantly her unborn child. They are asking, is this a form of child abuse?
This article greatly concerned me because not only am I obese but I am trying to get pregnant and it is very distressing to think that people out there are thinking these sort of things.
The fact is that unless you are obese you really have no idea how hard it is to lose the weight, and if you somehow mange to lose it, it is a whole other thing trying to keep it off. And sometimes it is a medical problem that makes it difficult no matter what you do to lose it.
There are so many articles online that state this or that and it is very scary to think that your weight could cause harm to your baby. This information is freaking me out. Ezine Articles have given us this article by Beverley Brooks.
It contains all the things we should know before falling pregnant if we are overweight or obese. Not to mention the things that can go wrong, not only for you but also your baby. They also have some good links that you can look at in the bottom of the page of that article. Well worth a read.
