Abstract: It is crucial for women to consume a balanced diet during the gestation period for both her own health and the best possible development of the foetus. A child’s good growth and development, which in turn leads to a productive and healthy life in later years, depend largely on adequate nutrition during the “critical window of opportunity” in the first 1000 days. Total weight gain during pregnancy, which is obviously determined and impacted by maternal nutritional intake during pregnancy, is one of many elements that determine foetal growth as a result of overall pregnancy status. One of the best indicators of a successful pregnancy is observing a mother’s adequate weight growth. Predicting new born and mother morbidity and death using weight gain during pregnancy is crucial. Other factors like PCOD, hypothyroidism, GDM can also play a role in excessive weight gain. The present research focuses to study more about factors that causes excessive weight gain during pregnancy.
