There is no doubt that carrying extra weight can be a major cause of infertility. Being overweight may also cause problems with conception, pregnancy and labour.
One of the reasons why clients come to us to lose weight is that they are having difficulty in conceiving or they have been told by their doctor to lose weight, to increase their chances of becoming pregnant. Often this is a last resort before fertility treatment. We are always delighted when our clients come to us to lose weight to conceive and then fall pregnant.
Doing all that you can to be at a healthy weight before getting pregnant is recommended so as to give you and your baby the best chance.
