(KTVI) – A new study shows the time between pregnancies is a golden window for overweight women to lose weight.

Dr. Sarah Hopkins is a SLUCare exercise physiologist and talked with Margie Ellisor about the results of the study.

The population-based study looked at the records of 10,444 Missouri women who delivered their first two babies between 1998 and 2005. It found that obese women who lost weight between pregnancies were more likely to have normal sized babies – infants who were neither too large nor too small for their gestational age – than women who gained weight or whose weight didn't change.
