Abstract

Babies of women with a high BMI have an increased chance of dying in utero or soon after birth, but how weight gain between pregnancies affects this phenomenon is unclear. Findings in a new study suggest that a BMI rise of ≥4 kg/m2 between pregnancies can amplify the risk of stillbirth and neonatal mortality.
