Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of pre pregnancy body mass index (BMI) and gestational weight gain on pregnancy outcomes. Material & Methods: This study was prospective cross-sectional study. Subjects consisted of 1351 pregnant women who referred to childbirth to Besat Hospital in Sanandaj (the capital of Kurdistan province in the West of Iran). Subjects were chosen based on three factors: singleton term pregnancy, having medical records, and referring to the health care center up to the 12th week of pregnancy. Data collection was done through questionnaires. Results: The incidence of overweight (BMI>26) was thirty-eight percent. Investigating the effect of BMI on maternal complications and specifying odds ratio showed that chance of maternal complications in subjects with an BMI of 26.1-29; (CI = 95; 0.58-3.16) is 1.36 times higher than, in those with a normal BMI and for women with BMI >29; (CI95; 1.05-2.99) is 1.77 times more than normal BMI. Furthermore Study showed that the odds ratio for neonatal complications among women with BMI 26.1-29; (CI = 95; 0.40-3.84) is 1.25 times higher than women with normal BMI and for women with BMI>29; (CI95; 0.25-2.23) is 0.75 times more than normal BMI. Chi-square test proved a significant statistical relation between childbirth method and BMI (P < 0.05). Conclusion: The results of the study showed that weight and BMI before pregnancy as important factors affecting maternal and neonatal complications.
