Pregnancy and Gastric Bypass

Some Pregnancy-Related Complications Minimized for Women Who Have Had Weight-Loss Surgery - MarketWatch: "ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov 18, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Women who undergo weight-loss surgery, known as bariatric surgery, and later become pregnant after losing weight may be at lower risk for pregnancy-related diabetes and high blood pressure -- complications that can seriously affect the mother or her baby -- than pregnant women who are obese, according to new findings from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality that are published in the November 19 issue of JAMA."

This is awesome research done about cause near and dear to my heart. One of the reasons I had surgery was to have children. Mitigating the complications of pregnancy is what this is all about. Infertile and PCOS women rejoice!
