Many women are concerned that being overweight at the beginning of pregnancy will make them “high risk” throughout pregnancy and especially concerned that their weight may cause problems during childbirth.

Today I answer a viewer's question on weight and childbirth, and also dispel some myths about what's really safe – and what's not, when starting a pregnancy overweight.

Also be sure to check out The Well Rounded Mama for plenty of evidence-based information on weight and how it impacts pregnancy and birth.
