Calculate my optimal weight gain


Being based on maternal BMI (Body Mass Index, weight/height²) before pregnancy, this calculation can be done at the first prenatal visit.

WARNING: This calculation is valid until obesity class II (40 kg/m²). These women should lose 6 kg during their pregnancy. For higher obesity (class III), we may for the moment give the same advice.
