Surgical and pharmacological weight management before pregnancy: effect on gestational weight gain, obstetrical complications, and birth outcomes

Dates: 7/2024 - 6/2026
Sponsor: Heilbrunn
Principal Investigator: Caitlin Dreisbach, PhD, RN
Description: The goal of this proposed study is to use Truveta data to determine the impact of pre-pregnancy bariatric surgery and anti-obesity drug use on gestational weight gain, pregnancy outcomes (e.g., gestational diabetes), and birth outcomes (e.g., macrosomia). Also, we will examine the rate of birth defects in women who were exposed to anti-obesity drugs during pregnancy
