Being overweight or obese can pose problems for the health of the mother and the baby during pregnancy. However, pregnancy is not an ideal time to focus on losing weight. Instead, it's important to focus on eating a healthy, balanced diet to ensure the proper nutrients are consumed. Patients who are overweight or obese may need to be seen more frequently to ensure they stay healthy, and they can also get the guidance they need to ensure they eat properly for optimal nutrition.
After a baby is delivered, the mother's body goes through a series of dramatic chemical and physiological changes as the body returns to its non-pregnant state. During this time, hormones can fluctuate dramatically, and feeling sad, depressed, or “blue” is not uncommon during the first days and even weeks after pregnancy. For some women, these feelings linger longer. Any type of mood change following pregnancy should be reported to the office to ensure the appropriate care is provided as soon as possible to avoid ongoing postpartum depression.
