Worldwide, obesity is the prevalent, chronic medical condition (1). The rate of obesity in pregnant women is rising, increasing the significance of its impact on obesity-related pregnancy complications. (2) Maternal body mass index (BMI) is one of the predictors of the nutritional status of pregnant ladies. The problem of rising obesity is not unique to India. In earlier research, the relationship between maternal height and weight with pregnancy complications have been extensively explored, but in recent times, BMI is widely accepted as a better measure of over or underweight [3]. Most of the developing countries, including India, are now facing double burden because of extreme socioeconomic distribution. On one side, there is overweight and obesity which has reached epidemic proportions and on the other side, there is underweight and undernourishment. In India, 26% of pregnant women are overweight, and 8% are obese (4).
