London: Overeating during pregnancy makes women vulnerable to obesity for a lifetime, latest research has revealed.

Study leader Abigail Fraser of Bristol University said women should avoid overeating, particularly in the first six months when extra weight is laid down as fat before the baby really needs it for growth.

Although weight gain during pregnancy is natural as the baby develops, the number of women who suffer from pregnancy obesity has more than doubled in the past 20 years, reports the Daily Mail.

The long-term Bristol study found that those who gained more than the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy were three times as likely to be overweight, obese or become "apple-shaped" 16 years later.

But women who began pregnancy at a healthy weight and who gained only a little weight were much less likely to go on to become fat and develop health-related problems.
