Lower your chances of developing Gestational Diabetes and Cesarean section…

Do you want to have Bariatric surgery, and also want to become pregnant one day? If so, then you should consider undergoing bariatric surgery before becoming pregnant! A study done between 2002 and 2006 by Dr. Anne E. Burke, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, found that obese women who have bariatric surgery before becoming pregnant are three times less likely to develop Gestational Diabetes and have reduced chances of having a Cesarean section than women who become pregnant before undergoing bariatric surgery. In addition, the study concluded that obese women who delivered before undergoing bariatric surgery were more likely to have an Adjustable Gastric Banding surgery than obese women who delivered after undergoing bariatric surgery. Therefore, consider bariatric surgery before planning a pregnancy!
