Obesity and Pregnancy is our 'Hot Topic' for 2015. The rise of obesity in developed countries, including amongst women of reproductive age, means that discussing obesity’s impact on pregnancy could not be more important.
This two-day event balances basic science, translational research and clinical practice. Topics such as the merit of obesity interventions during pregnancy will be discussed, and we will hear about new policy regarding pregnancy. We will delve into the often poorly-understood factors affecting pregnancy, including probiotics, micro-nutrients and physical activity. Our international panel of renowned experts will present their and integrate their findings on these diverse topics to provide a better understanding of obesity and pregnancy.
The conference is targeted at clinicians (obstetricians, paediatricians, endocrinologists, surgeons, etc.), and midwives, psychologists, nutritionists and basic scientists involved in the field of obesity and reproduction.
The event will take place 29-30th October 2015 in London, UK.
