Back cover:

A dramatic and worldwide increase is occurring in the prevalence of overweight and obesity in women of childbearing age. Obese women carry a significant excess risk of complications during pregnancy, including infertility, spontaneous abortion, congenital malformations, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, fetal macrosomia, and cesarean delivery. Furthermore, maternal obesity predisposes to obesity in the offspring, indicating that the prevention of childhood obesity should already start during pregnancy.
