Abstract Rates of overweight and obesity are high in the obstetric population. In pregnancy, overweight and obesity are associated with increased risk of complications of pregnancy for both the mother and the infant. These complications include gestational diabetes mellitus, preeclampsia, instrumental delivery or delivery by Caesarean section in the mother. In the baby, there are increased risks for infants being born macrosomic or large for gestational age, birth injuries, neonatal hypoglycemia and increased admittance to neonatal special care nurseries. Both prepregnancy interventions and interventions during pregnancy are used to prevent complications from arising in the high-risk group of overweight and obese women. This article provides an overview of interventions used in clinical practice and their rates of success.
