Obesity in Pre-Pregnancy Stage Can Affect Quality of Breast Milk

Parent Interventions

If the mother-to-be was obese in the pre-pregnancy stage, it can have impact on the quality of breast milk and which in turn will affect the growth of the child.
Henry Nuss of New Orlean School of Public Health pointed out that breast milk content will vary according to the weight of the mother at the time of conception. It was found that children born to overweight women achieved lesser growth despite taking breast milk. It contains pro-inflammatory proteins such as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a) and interleukin-six (IL-6) as well as hormones like insulin and leptin.

Hence women planning their pregnancy may as well look assess their BMI (Body Mass Index) and deal with obesity before getting pregnant to ensure future well-being of the child.
