No.: There is no data to suggest a link between maternal diet during pregnancy and fertility of offspring decades later.
Dr. Quang Nguyen
Specializes in Endocrinology
No: Numerous studies have shown that if a pregnant woman gains a significant amount of (unhealthy) weight during pregnancy, her child is at risk for obesity later on in life. Obesity alone can cause reproductive problems for the child when she reaches her reproductive years.
