obesity correspond to 299 pregnant women. During the three-year analysis of the population
of obese pregnant women, which focuses on the incidence of associated diseases
complicating the course of pregnancy and childbirth. In a group of pregnant
women we compare the number of spontaneous and operative deliveries.

complications - hypertension, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes mellitus. We
