Study: Babies born after moms’ weight loss surgery are healthier

WASHINGTON — Of the many powers mothers wield, few are more extraordinary than the power to nudge a child’s health prospects in one direction or another simply by having incubated that child in her womb. Research is uncovering more and more instances in which a pregnant woman’s own health issues powerfully influence those of her child. A new study demonstrates this is especially true of her weight status, and shows that weight-loss surgery can change the picture dramatically. Research has already shown that the children that obese women bear before and after they have undergone bariatric surgery are different from each other. Compared with their peers born to obese women, children born to mothers following weight-loss surgery are significantly less likely to be obese. They have healthier blood pressure, lipid profiles and metabolic function.
