Lecture Overview

Barker's Hypothesis states that women are programmed to develop in a certain way according to their mother's, and grandmother's, genetic and environmental upbringing. Does this mean there's any hope for overweight mothers and their babies? In this fascinating and frank talk, Heather Harris explains why weight loss is not always as easy as it seems, and how a high maternal BMI needs to be addressed early in order to avoid disastrous effects on the infant.
