About this title:

Hot Topics in Perinatal Medicine

Obesity in women of reproductive age is a growing 21st-Century problem, presenting serious difficulties for obstetricians and paediatricians who are faced with a mother's pre-pregnancy and pre-natal obesity, followed by obesity at delivery, and have to consider the implications for foetal programming and for maternal and foetal lifelong metabolism.

Pregnancy and Obesity discusses the current international guidelines, emphasizing the importance of counselling women regarding the risks - including diabetes, thrombosis, hypertension, foetal anomalies and still birth - associated with obesity in pregnancy, and stressing the necessity of screening for these adverse outcomes.

Initiatives to develop a common terminology and reporting of outcomes in women's health are also discussed, as these are important for the development of cohesive and uniform recommendations for patient care. Also covered are sisparities in management strategies, gaps in research, and the need for systematic reviews to allow clinicians to provide an appropriate obstetrical care pathway for obese women.

Editors: Cynthia Maxwell and Dan Farine
