Pregnancy after bariatric surgery and adverse perinatal outcomes: A systematic review and meta-analysis

It is found that bariatric surgery, especially gastric bypass, prior to pregnancy was associated with increased risk of some adverse perinatal outcomes, which suggests that women who have undergonebariatric surgery may benefit from specific preconception and pregnancy nutritional support and increased monitoring of fetal growth and development.

The recommendations regarding GWG apply to the RYGB population, and surgery-conception intervals should be individualized, and psychological and psychiatric care should be offered to every possible pregnancy after RyGB.

The Influence of Bariatric Surgery on Pregnancy and Perinatal Outcomes—A Case-Control Study

Patients after bariatric surgery have a decreased risk of pregnancy-induced comorbidities, preterm deliveries and LGA infants, with an increase in rate of CS and SGA infants compared to general population matched for pre-pregnancy BMI, age and presence of pre- pregnancy comorbridities.

Pregnancy outcome of patients following bariatric surgery as compared with obese women: a population-based study

Women following bariatric surgery have lower risk for gestational diabetes mellitus and fetal macrosomia as compared with obese parturients and bariatric Surgery is a risk factor for anemia, according to a retrospective population-based study.

Pregnancy and fertility following bariatric surgery: a systematic review.

Rates of many adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes may be lower in women who become pregnant after having had bariatric surgery compared with rates in pregnant women who are obese; however, further data are needed from rigorously designed studies.

Impact of prior bariatric surgery on maternal and fetal outcomes among obese and non-obese mothers

The findings support the need for preconception/interconception services tailored for former bariatric surgery patients to improve maternal and feto-infant health outcomes.
