Being overweight in early pregnancy associated with increased risk of cerebral palsy

Being overweight in early pregnancy associated with increased risk of cerebral palsy
- We investigated this because the etiology of cerebral palsy in children born at full term is poorly understood. Sweden has nation-wide registries of excellent quality that allow epidemiologists to examine these questions using data from almost everybody in the country. We found that, among children born at full term, those whose mothers had overweight or obesity in early pregnancy had higher chances of developing cerebral palsy than children whose mothers had normal weight.
