As the link between maternal obesity and risk of autism among offspring is unclear, the present study assessed this association. A systematic search of an electronic database was performed to identify observational studies that examined the association between maternal obesity and autism. The outcome measures were odds ratios comparing offspring autism risk between obese and normal-weight mothers. Five observational studies were included in the meta-analysis. A fixed-effects model was used… 
Maternal Body Mass Index and Risk of Autism Spectrum Disorders in Offspring: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
Excessive maternal BMI is associated with increased ASD risk in offspring, and a linear dose-response relationship was found.
The association between preeclampsia and autism spectrum disorders among children: a meta-analysis
TLDR
It is indicated that preeclampsia was associated with an increased risk of ASD among children and this meta-analysis pooled relevant case-control and cohort studies to evaluate the association.
Association of maternal diabetes with autism spectrum disorders in offspring
TLDR
Maternal diabetes, especially gestational diabetes mellitus, is associated with ASDs in offspring based on a limited number of convincing case-control studies and heterogeneity and publication bias disappeared, and the risk of ASDs was increased by 62% among diabetic mothers compared with non-diabetic mothers.
Association between parental body mass index and autism spectrum disorder: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Although no association between paternal BMI and ASD was found, current evidence is limited, and future studies are warranted to address more confounding factors and to identify potential mediators of the association.
Relationship of prenatal maternal obesity and diabetes to offspring neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders: a narrative review
TLDR
Evidence from epidemiological studies strongly suggests that maternal pre-pregnancy obesity is associated with increased risks for autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and cognitive dysfunction with modest effect sizes, and that maternal diabetes is associatedwith the risk of the former two disorders.
Maternal dietary patterns, supplements intake and autism spectrum disorders
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided that maternal unbalanced dietary patterns may be a risk factor for ASD and supplementation of calcium during pregnancy preparation may be inversely associated with ASD in offspring.

TLDR
Evidence of the association between maternal pre‐pregnancy overweight/obesity status and child neurodevelopmental outcomes is examined, indicating that compared with children of normal weight mothers, children whose mothers were overweight or obese prior to pregnancy were at increased risk for compromised neuro developmental outcomes.
The impact of obesity on pregnancy outcomes among women with psychiatric disorders: Results from a prospective pregnancy registry.
TLDR
Peripartum complications associated with obesity are common among women with psychiatric illness; thus, it is important to develop antenatal weight management interventions for this population.
Maternal metabolic risk factors for autism spectrum disorder—An analysis of electronic medical records and linked birth data
TLDR
Maternal obesity and GDM were associated with a statistically significant approximately 1.5‐fold increased odds of having a child with an ASD and no difference in risk of ASD according to BMI and G DM was seen when comparing to DD.

Maternal Diabetes and the Risk of Autism Spectrum Disorders in the Offspring: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that maternal diabetes was significantly associated with a greater risk of ASD in the offspring and cohort studies showed significant associations.
Parental Obesity and Risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Paternal obesity is an independent risk factor for ASDs in children, whereas paternal obesity was associated with an increased risk of autistic disorder and Asperger disorder.
Maternal Smoking and Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 15 studies on maternal prenatal smoking and ASD risk in offspring found no evidence of an association and there was evidence that ascertaining exposure at the time of birth produced a lower summary OR than when this information was gathered after birth.
Prenatal risk factors for autism: comprehensive meta-analysis
TLDR
There is insufficient evidence to implicate any one prenatal factor in autism aetiology, although there is some evidence to suggest that exposure to pregnancy complications may increase the risk.
Maternal Obesity and Increased Risk for Autism and Developmental Delay among Very Preterm Infants
TLDR
Maternal obesity was associated with adverse neurodevelopmental outcome at age 2 in this cohort of very preterm children and may support targeted surveillance of infants born to women with maternal obesity.
Maternal Metabolic Conditions and Risk for Autism and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders
TLDR
Maternal MCs may be broadly associated with neurodevelopmental problems in children, and with obesity rising steadily, these results appear to raise serious public health concerns.
Maternal Prenatal Weight Gain and Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
Pregnancy weight gain suggests that pregnancy weight gain may serve as an important marker for autism’s underlying gestational etiology, which justifies an investigation into phenomena that link pregnancy weight loss and ASD independent of prepregnancy BMI.
Exposure to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors during pregnancy and risk of autism spectrum disorder in children: A systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies
TLDR
The findings of this meta-analysis and narrative review support an increased risk of ASD in children of mothers exposed to SSRIs during pregnancy; however, the causality remains to be confirmed.
The Role of Prenatal, Obstetric and Neonatal Factors in the Development of Autism
TLDR
The results suggest that among those with low genetic susceptibility, some maternal and obstetric factors may have an independent role in autism etiology whereas among genetically susceptible children, these factors appear to play a lesser role.
Maternal Infection Requiring Hospitalization During Pregnancy and Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
The results support prior hypotheses concerning early prenatal viral infection increasing the risk of ASDs and admission to hospital due to maternal viral infection in the first trimester and maternal bacterial infections in the second trimester.
