Q13 Interview with Dr. Jennifer Jaucian, Issaquah OBGYN

Swedish’s Dr. Jennifer Jaucian, an OBGYN physician serving patients at the Issaquah hospital campus, spoke with Q13’s Tina Patel on Friday, Oct. 4 to talk about how much weight expecting mothers should gain during pregnancy.

The interview came after a new study shows that expecting mothers who gain more weight than is recommended have an increased risk of having overweight children.

Dr. Jaucian advised women to understand how much weight they should gain during pregnancy based on their body mass index, to work with their doctors to track their weight through each trimester and ideally to reach an ideal weight before becoming pregnant.
