Just wanted to ask if there has been any mothers who has been classified as overweight/obese that has had quick easy labours with no complications? or if any high risked mothers has had no complications in pregnancy and still delivered a safe baby?
I haven't had my baby yet, but I had a BMI of 33 at my booking in appointment so would be classed as obese. I have been considered low risk throughout my pregnancy and am currently booked to go to the midwife-led birthing centre attached to my local hospital. I've had normal blood pressure and no complications to this point, and the baby seems fine. I'll find out in a few weeks how labour goes!
With my first pregnancy I had a very high BMI of 42 at the start, though didn't put in more than a few pounds throughout the pregnancy. I never once had a problem and labour was pretty straightforward with a perfectly happy little one at the end. I never smoked or drank and made sure I ate healthily throughout the pregnancy so really think it just depends on the individual as I know of plenty of perfect BMI women who've had complications.
