The women surgically treated before their first child had a shorter gestational length, their children had lower birthweight, and were more often born small for gestational age compared with the children born to the reference mothers. Women whose child was born before their bariatric surgery more often had a cesarean section, and their children were more often large for gestational age. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanCONCLUSION: Preconception bariatric surgery in obese women may be associated with improved obstetric outcomes.
