Weight Management during Pregnancy
Gaining weight during pregnancy varies from person to person. Dr. Ellen Schwartzbard, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist Health South Florida, advises not eating for two during pregnancy.
The specialist affirms on average it’s about 25-30 pounds for the entire pregnancy, about 300 additional calories per day.
She says that overweight women are well if they gain fewer pounds during pregnancy. Low weight patients can gain more.
