Weight Management during Pregnancy




Dr. Joanna Bedell, Obstetrician and Gynecologist at Baptist Health South Florida, says the average weight that a woman gains when it is one baby is about 25 to 30 if you are already starting at a normal weight. “For patients who are coming into the pregnancy overweight, we recommend maybe 10, 15, 20 pounds, a little bit less, but otherwise normal pregnancy about 25 pounds,” she says.

Dr. Sarah Bedell, Obstetrician and Gynecologist at Baptist Health South Florida, explains if you are having multiples the ideal to gain is 25 pounds per additional baby.
