Obesity in pregnancy is rising and is associated with severe health consequences for both the mother and the child. There is an increasing international focus on guidelines to manage the clinical risks of maternal obesity, and for pregnancy weight management. However, passive dissemination of guidelines is not effective and more active strategies are required for effective guideline implementation into practice. Implementation of guidelines is a form of healthcare professional behaviour change, and therefore implementation strategies should be based on appropriate behaviour change theory. This systematic review aimed to identify the determinants of healthcare professionals' behaviours in relation to maternal obesity and weight management. Twenty‐five studies were included. Data synthesis of the existing international qualitative and quantitative evidence base used the Theoretical Domains Framework to identify the barriers and facilitators to healthcare professionals' maternal obesity and weight management practice. The domains most frequently identified included 'knowledge', 'beliefs about consequences' and 'environmental context and resources'. Healthcare professionals' weight management practice had the most barriers compared with any other area of maternal obesity practice. The results of this review will be used to inform the development of an intervention to support healthcare professional behaviour change.

Obese women carry a significant excess risk of a variety of serious complications during pregnancy, and in addition, maternal obesity predisposes to obesity in the offspring. This book provides a timely update on the latest knowledge on maternal obesity and pregnancy. A very wide range of issues are covered, including macrosomia and associated shoulder dystocia; the risk of miscarriage, malformations, and complications of pregnancy; the impact of hyperglycemia; clinical management; consequences for anesthesia and ultrasound; impacts on breastfeeding, fertility, and childhood obesity; and pregnancy following gastric surgery. All of the authors are recognized experts in their fields, and the book has been designed to meet the practical needs of obstetricians, gynecologists, internists, and general practitioners.

Abstract: Suboptimal maternal nutrition and excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) establish in mothers and their offspring a weight gain trajectory towards overweight and obesity. Therefore, pregnancy may be the best opportunity to disrupt the generational cycle of obesity. More than half of women in the UK now enter pregnancy overweight or obese, highlighting that if interventions are not targeted towards women in higher weight categories before conception they are likely to 'miss the mark'. To address issues of suboptimal maternal nutrition and excessive GWG in antenatal care, health professionals need to consider how women's requirements and expectations may have changed in recent years and the impact of weight stigma on the care of women who are obese. This paper aims to drive changes in clinical practice guidelines, medical curricula, the language used by health professionals, and ultimately promote maternal nutrition and weight management in pregnancy as key priorities during antenatal care. Evidence indicates that women want non‐judgemental, simple and encouraging guidance in these areas. Small changes to health professionals' practice can improve how advice regarding nutrition and weight management in pregnancy is delivered, and has the potential to reduce overweight and obesity prevalence in women and their children in the years to come. Surely that goal is worth pursuing.

From desk of: Helena Sae If you want to safely drop those extra pounds and inches you gained while pregnant... without wasting money and time on dangerous drugs, stimulants, or gym memberships... this website was written just for you. Here's the story…I Looked In the Mirror And Saw a “Mom Body”… I just had my first child… and although I was so excited about the beautiful little girl I had brought into this world… I wasn’t so excited about what it had done to my body! All those “trouble areas” before looked WAY worse now… My thighs looked huge… My stomach wasn’t as tight anymore, I had gained at least 10 pounds of tummy fat…My buns weren’t holding that nice tight shape… And my breasts were so much bigger… they were starting to sag! How I lost the pounds, toned up, and got my body back! You know, some women just think after you have a baby you have to give up – that you’ll never get your nice, slim body back again… Not only is this not true, but it just isn’t healthy! I had always enjoyed being physically active before my pregnancy and knew it was healthier to be that way… and I wasn’t going to let my baby (who brought so much joy into my life) keep me from being in the healthiest and best shape possible! So I started researching… I became obsessed with reading all the books, magazines, websites and anything else I could get my hands on related to health, fitness and losing weight. And I’m here to tell you…Losing your after pregnancy pounds isn’t that hard… It’s Easier Than You Think! Turns out losing the weight isn’t complicated once you know a few basic principles. In fact, there’s a couple things that make losing weight after pregnancy easy for you … • With your new “baby chores” you’re going to be running around a LOT (this is gonna burn lots of calories!)… • The father of your baby is going to be VERY supportive of you dropping those extra pounds and inches you gained during your pregnancy (support is critical!)… • You can take your time to drop the pounds. After all—it took you 9 months to gain the weight so you should be able to take at least 9 months to lose it… • Other moms are usually very supportive and may want to join you in your quest… And, contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have a personal trainer, chef and all the time in the world to get back into shape like some Hollywood star…That's the big secret. In fact, what I discovered is there are only a few key principles and basic strategies that can make you TEN TIMES more likely to lose the weight you want… Here's the problem... There's No Simple Guide, I searched an searched for a good simple guide to dropping those extra pounds.You know, a booklet that was low on fluff and just tells me what I need to know about getting back into shape. I don't want to know all the scientific details, or read a university-level course on body composition or physiology, etc. I just want to know...what are the basic tips that fitness pros know that would make it easier to drop my extra weight—FAST? Just teach me those tips, was what I was thinking. I couldn't find such a booklet. So I compiled all my research, and had one created!
