Pregnancy Weight Gain Calculator
The Pregnancy Weight Gain Calculator will help you determine the recommended weight gain that will promote a healthy pregnancy.
What are the benefits of gaining a healthy amount of weight during pregnancy?
Gaining a healthy amount of weight during pregnancy can:
- help your baby have a healthy start;
- reduce your risk of complications in pregnancy and at delivery; and
- improve your long-term health.
Recommended weight gain is based on a woman's Body Mass Index before pregnancy (her pre-pregnancy BMI).
