Obese women run a greater risk of repeat miscarriages and should be warned to lose weight before they try and become pregnant again, according to a new study.

Researchers at St Mary's Hospital in London found obese women who had suffered one miscarriage had a significantly increased risk of a further miscarriage compared to those who were of a normal weight.

The 11-year study investigated the effect of body mass index (BMI) on unexplained recurrent miscarriages.

The women had their BMI measured and were placed into one of four categories: underweight; normal; overweight; and obese.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.

    I think that it is great that they are going to try counselling obese women into weight loss before they fall pregnant. It is not only a risk for miscarriage but is bad for their health.
