Pregnancy After Bariatric Surgery: Nutritional Recommendations (AUS)

Jan 18, 20237:00pm AEDT1.5 hours
Bariatric surgery can result in improved fertility and better pregnancy outcomes (Milone et al., 2016). Bariatric patients face an increased risk for nutritional deficiencies which can cause maternal and fetal complications during pregnancy. Deficiencies during pregnancy occur in up to 70% of women, usually due to inadequate dietary intake and decreased absorption of nutrients (Snoek et al., 2022). During this webinar, we will discuss nutritional recommendations to reduce the risk of deficiencies in this patient group.
