my close friend is fat... well obese and she wants to conceive. the doctor is told her to lose weight. is her weight a factor in her failure to have a baby?

i saw an article on science now that suggests that obesity and having a hard time conceiving may be related.

a study showed that obese women are three times more likely to have a harder time getting pregnant than women with regular weight.

yup, she needs to lose the weight, no more being nice about this.

Also consider that if you are obese during your pregnancy, there is a higher chance that the baby will have certain birth defects. The chances of birth defects is still at a low occurence even for obese women having a baby. So this is something of a good news.

Tell your friend to go to a counsel first so that she is fully aware of what she is going into.
