This innovative program takes a proactive approach to the problem of maternal obesity — and ultimately, childhood obesity. The goal is to improve pregnancy outcomes through medically monitored weight management and nutritional guidance during the preconceptual, pregnancy and post-partum stages.
To welcome the healthiest possible baby into the world, you’ll want to do everything you can to enjoy a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery. Optimizing your weight before pregnancy and continuing on a healthy path after delivery will create a brighter future for you — and your child.
Maintaining Your Health During Pregnancy
Cleveland Clinic’s Be Well MomsSM will give you the information you need to optimize your weight and health before and during pregnancy, and after delivery.
The program is led by bariatric medical specialist Karen Cooper, DO, and was created with Jeffrey Chapa, MD, Head of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, along with registered dietitians.
Our goal is to educate and empower you to:
- Reach a healthy weight before pregnancy
- Gain the right amount of weight during pregnancy
- Shed the weight you gained during pregnancy after delivery
The program will be offered at these locations:
