dc.description.abstractBackground and aims: Raised maternal body mass index (BMI), in association with hyperglycaemia is associated with adverse pregnancy outcome. Whether BMI has an independent effect on adverse pregnancy outcome is not clear. We aimed to investigate the effects of raised maternal BMI on pregnancy outcome in glucose tolerant women, classified using the IADPSG criteria. Materials and methods: Prospective observational study of pregnancy outcome in a cohort of women attending an antenatal clinic recruited to a universal screening programme for gestational diabetes. Maternal outcomes included glucose, delivery mode, pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH), pre-eclampsia (PET), antepartum hemorrhage (APH) and postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). Fetal outcomes included birthweight, congenital malformation, fetal death, neonatal jaundice, hypoglycemia and respiratory distress. Analyses performed using stepwise logistic regression and decision trees. Analyses adjusted for maternal age, parity, cigarette smoking and ethnicity. Results: Increasing maternal BMI was associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes: higher cesarean section rates, pre-eclamptic toxemia, pregnancy induced hypertension, increased birth weight and congenital malformation. The association of normal range glucose with adverse pregnancy outcome was weak and did not interact with the effects of raised BMI. A BMI threshold of 28 kg/m2 was associated with a significant rise in adverse pregnancy outcome. Adverse obstetric outcome in association with raised BMI was greater in primiparous women. Conclusion: Raised maternal BMI, within the overweight range, is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. These adverse effects of BMI occur independently of maternal glucose.
