07/01/2009 - Obesity in Pregnancy Conference

British Library, London, NW1 2BD

For travel information to this location please click here.

The growing epidemic of obesity is a national concern and if current trends persist, 50% of the female population will be obese by 2050 (Foresight Report).  The prevalence of obesity in pregnancy in pregnancy is also on the rise and it is becoming increasingly more urgent to have protocols and strategies in place to be able to give care to this group of women.  The recent 'Saving Mothers's Lives' enquiry highlighted that just under one third of all women who died between 2002 and 2005 (where BMI was documented) had a BMI of 30 of higher.  In addition the perinatal mortality report from 2005 found that approximately 30% of mothers whose babies were stillborn or died in the neonatal period were obese (where documented).

The conference will provide a forum for discussing some of the issues surrounding all aspects of caring for women with a high BMI, including:

  • clinical risk factors
  • anaesthetic issues and consequences for the fetus and neonate

There will be two case studies of units which have set up a clinic aimed at improving outcomes for women and their babies and also a chance to hear from the other side - a women's story of her experience of the maternity service.  At the end of the morning and afternoon sessions, there will be a panel session where questions will be welcomed from the floor.
