Obesity in pregnancy can affect both mother and child. Maternal obesity can cause negative outcomes for both women and fetuses and it also increases the risk of pregnancy complications. Women who are obese are less likely to have a live birth following in vitro fertilization (IVF). For women, the risks include heart disease and hypertension. Children have a risk of obesity in the future and heart disease. Both women and their offspring will have a  risk for diabetes.
