JAMA Network Open

Peer-Reviewed Publication

JAMA Network

About The Study: Women with a history of bariatric surgery had lower pregnancy weight gain than matched controls with similar early pregnancy characteristics in this study of 12,000 pregnancies. Pregnancy weight gain was lower in those with a shorter surgery-to-conception interval or lower surgery-to-conception weight loss, but did not differ by surgical procedure. 

Authors: Huiling Xu, M.D., M.Sc., of the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, is the corresponding author.
