According to a new research, women who get pregnant after weight-loss surgery tend to be healthier.
An obese woman who has weight-loss, or bariatric, surgery also may increase her chances of getting pregnant
In some cases, pregnancy-related risks after surgery were comparable to those for normal-weight women.
Bariatric procedures have surged in the past decade, with more than 200,000 performed last year in the United States. In the years 2002 to 2005 covered by the study, 150,000 U.S. women of child-bearing age underwent the surgery.
