Healthy weight in pregnancy

If you begin your pregnancy with a BMI >35 you will be offered the opportunity to see the healthy weight in pregnancy midwives.

Clinics are run in both Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone.

The Healthy Weight Midwives will support you in creating a personalised eating plan to prevent you gaining excess weight in your pregnancy. Putting on too much weight in pregnancy can affect your and your baby’s health. Being a healthy weight means that it is easier to move around in labour and reduces the chance of needing more medical help.
