Marlene MargallanesOverweight and Obesity in Women in Childbearing Age (MEF) has increased in Peru. The retention of body weight in the post partum period is a very important predictor of overweight in the MEF population, and this can persist over life. The aim of my presentation is to broadcast and discuss the results obtained in a research project which objective was to Evaluate the Pre Pregnancy BMI, pregnancy weight gain, and the weight retention at the 6 months post partum.

I would like to discuss with colleagues who have more information related to this topic to those who would be interested in the prevention of overweight and obesity in the MEF population, and to discuss about the negative effects of this nutritional pathologies in the health of Mothers and babies.
