Bariatric Surgery After Pregnancy: Me’Chelle’s Story

By Conditions Team

It is healthy and encouraged to gain weight during pregnancy, but many women are not prepared for their bodies to keep gaining weight after their baby is born. While this is a common issue that millions of women experience, there are options for managing your postpartum weight.
