Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the USA. Bariatric surgery is an important and increasingly utilized treatment option for morbid obesity refractory to medical therapy. Approximately half of all bariatric surgery patients are reproductive-aged women and, thus, represent a unique patient population with specific concerns. This manuscript focuses on issues of increased postoperative fertility, nutritional monitoring and supplementation, safety of pregnancy after bariatric surgery, and effect of pregnancy on postoperative weight loss. Current recommendations regarding management of patients both before and during pregnancy are provided. In addition, we highlight areas where more research on this issue is needed and advocate for a multidisciplinary approach to patient care.
