There's a new warning about the link between obesity and pregnancy.

Overweight and obese women could be putting their unborn children at risk for possible health problems.

Canadian researchers looked at 84 studies and found moms who were overweight and obese were more likely to give birth to a preterm baby and to have a baby with low birth weight.

Preterm birth and low birth weight are major causes of death in babies and can lead to future illnesses.
