Abstract: Obesity is an emerging major public health problem throughout the World and its prevalence has largely increased over the last decade in both developed and developing countries. Maternal obesity is associated with many risks to the pregnancy, with increased risk of miscarriage and operative delivery and other risks to the mother include an increased risk of pre-eclampsia and thromboembolism. Obesity during pregnancy is one of the main factors related to birth outcome with birth weight highly correlated to maternal weight gain. In light of the above the present study was aimed at finding the correlation between maternal obesity and neonatal outcome. The study was conducted at Fernandez Hospital, Abids, Hyderabad, consisting of 100 pregnant women using a pre- tested semi structured questionnaire. The percentage of normal BMI subjects was observed to be 10% (N), Overweight 38% (O.wt), Obese 31% (O), Morbidly Obese 21% (M.O). The complications which were observed are Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (O-32%, M.O- 29%), Anaemia (O-23%, M.O-5%), Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (O-26%, M.O-29%), Hypothyroidism (O-10%, M.O-14%) were more prominent among obese and morbidly obese pregnant women. From the results it was clear that the average birth weight of the baby was higher in Obese (3.00kgs) and Morbidly Obese (3.25kgs) pregnant women and the number of neonatal complications like Macrosomia (O-32%, M.O-67%), Jaundice (O-48%, M.O-67%), hypoglycaemia (O-32%, M.O-43%) and congenital anomalies (O-29%, M.O-29%) were higher in obese and morbidly obese pregnant women. It can be concluded that higher the BMI more the number of complications among neonate.
