A mother's weight and the amount she gains during pregnancy both impact her daughter's risk of obesity decades later ...

... "If we can help women reach a healthy weight before they start a family, we can make a difference for two generations."

... The heavier a mother was before her pregnancy, the more likely her daughter was to be obese in later life ...

Weight gain during pregnancy mattered, too both too little and too much weight gain increased a daughter's risk of becoming obese, especially if a mother was overweight before she got pregnant
