Gaining the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy can help your baby’s development before birth and ensure a normal weight at birth and throughout childhood.
Typically, a woman beginning pregnancy at a healthy weight doesn’t require extra calories during the first 3 months of pregnancy, but she will need 340-450 extra calories each day during the last 6 months of pregnancy for healthy growth and development of her baby.
