This is actually pretty alarming!
Women who are overweight while pregnant are more likely to have babies who are biologically “older” than those born to women of a healthy weight, a new study suggests.
This could put the babies at a higher risk of developing chronic diseases later in life, and may reduce their life expectancy.
OK, so what does “older” mean?!
A new study says that if you’re overweight during pregnancy, you’re likely going to give birth to an “older” baby.
