Healthy weight gain in pregnancy

The Healthy weight gain in pregnancy poster provides good clear information about healthy levels of weight gain in pregnancy.

It is important to keep track of your weight while you are pregnant and, if you like, you can use the table in the Healthy weight gain in pregnancy record to do this.

Usually your Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) will weigh you at intervals throughout your pregnancy. If you have any concerns about your weight or nutrition, speak to your LMC or GP.
