Hi all. Just looking for advice. I will be 18 months post-op from gastric bypass and maintaining around 180. I am looking to get pregnant soon. I got back in touch with my program and PCP and they all seem a little clueless about what I need to do to have a successful pregnancy. Can anyone who had a healthy pregnant post RNY share their Vitamin regime? Anything else you did that was different than a non weight loss surgery pregnancy??

Please contact your bariatric surgeon. This is super important for your baby's health, so please don't guess. If I were getting pregnant after surgery, I would be sure to have my Vitamin and minerals blood tests done with my bariatric surgeon... to make sure I'm not deficient before getting pregnant. In particular, I would be concerned about Iron levels. Getting professional advice about pregnancy nutrion and supplements from people who understand bariatric surgery is super important. Best wishes on expanding your family!

With Kaiser we have no contact with our surgeon after we are two weeks out from surgery. We are only seen from then on by our PCP and the dietician. That’s why I am reaching out here. My PCP has no experience treating RNY patients.

I am 32 weeks pregnant and so far everything is ok. Baby’s birth weight is low but still above the 10th percentile. I had to up all Vitamins especially iron! Only difference is the amount of appointments and support team you have. Anyone who is pregnant after wls is considered high risk. So they monitor very closely.
