As per available reports about Maternal Obesity 10 Conferences, 4 Relavant Journals and 200 open access articles are presently dedicated exclusively to Maternal Obesity and about 8 articles are being published on Maternal Obesity. Maternal Obesity or Parental obesity (defined as obesity during pregnancy) increases health risks for both the mother and child during and after pregnancy. Maternal Obesity has a significant impact on maternal metabolism and offspring development.
Insulin resistance, glucose homeostasis fat oxidation and amino acid synthesisare all disrupted by maternal obesity and contribute to adverse outcomes. Modification of lifestyle is an effective intervention strategy for improvement of maternal metabolism and the prevention of adverse outcomes.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members.

Maternal Obesity conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Maternal Obesity is also sometimes also called as Parental obesity which is the science concerned that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of maternal obesity. Maternal Obesity is associated with greater risk of pregnancy complications. Additionally, children born to overweight and diabetic mothers are often large for gestational age, and at increased risk for developing metabolic syndrome later in life. It is thought that the intrauterine environment might be central to these observed outcomes, however, the particular characteristics of this environment remain elusive.
Maternal Obesity and consumption of high-fat diet can influence fetal development and growth. Placental inflammation leads to molecular alterations in different tissues in the off spring. Hypothalamic tissues can show early changes in the expression of neuropeptides, which contribute to damages in metabolic control and energy homeostasis. Inflammation of the placenta can affect orexigenic/anorexigenic neuropeptides, reward system, and energy expenditure, which in turn contribute to obesity and diabetes in the offspring. These changes can be caused by epigenetic mechanisms and can be passed on from the mother to the offspring .
Maternal Obesity conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of:
It also provides the platform for researchers, scholars and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Maternal Obesity.
Maternal obesity is defined as obesity during pregnancy which increases health risks for both the mother and child during and after pregnancy. During pregnancy weight gain should typically fall between 11-20 pounds in order to improve outcomes for both mother and child. Increased rates of hypertension, diabetes, respiratory complications, and infections are prevalent in cases of maternal obesity and can have detrimental effects on pregnancy outcomes. Maternal obesity is an extremely strong risk factor for gestational diabetes.
Maternal obesity increases the risk for the offspring in developing obesity and altering body composition in child- and adulthood and, additionally, it also has an impact on the offspring's cardiometabolic health with dysregulation of metabolism including glucose/insulin homoeostasis, and development of hypertension and vascular dysfunction. Potential mechanisms include effects on the development and function of adipose tissue, pancreas, muscle, liver, the vasculature and the brain.
The risks related to obesity during pregnancy for the mother are:
• maternal death or severe morbidity
• cardiac disease
• spontaneous first trimester and recurrent miscarriage
• gestational diabetes
• post-caesarean wound infection
• infection from other causes
• postpartum haemorrhage
• low breastfeeding rates
Research has found that obese mothers who lose weight (at least 10 pounds) in-between pregnancies reduce the risk of gestational diabetes during their next pregnancy, whereas mothers who gain weight actually increase their risk.
Prevalence rates (PR) of overweight and obesity among the children were 15.6% and 12.9%, respectively. Among the subset of breastfed children, factors associated with the outcome were maternal overweight and/or obesity (PR 1.92; 95% confidence interval “95% CI” 1.15–3.24) and lower income (PR 0.50; 95% CI 0.29–0.85). Among children who had not been breastfed or had been breastfed for shorter periods (less than 12 months), predictors were mothers with lower levels of education (PR 0.39; 95% CI 0.19–0.78), working mothers (PR 1.83; 95% CI 1.05–3.21), caesarean delivery (PR 1.98; 95% CI 1.14 – 3.50) and maternal obesity (PR 3.05; 95% CI 1.81 – 5.25).
