Obese woman encounter problems with fertility and higher incidence of complications like still birth, gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, thromboembolism and maternal accrete. Bariatric surgery is now available as an option for morbidly obese patients where life style or medications to control obesity have become ineffective. Mild nutritional deficiencies are frequent after bariatric surgery. Pregnant woman requires additional Vitamin B12, folate, iron, calcium, protein and fat soluble vitamins to meet up the increasing demand. We present a brief review of the current recommendations for nutritional supplementation in post bariatric surgery pregnancies.
