The aim of the study was to assess the course of pregnancy and childbirth in patients with varying degrees of obesity.Material and methods of research. A retrospective study of pregnant women with different body mass index (BMI), the delivery of which occurred in the period 01.01.2018-06.30.2018, was conducted. The results of the study. In the study, the largest proportion - 53% were pregnant women with a BMI above 30 kg/m2, the proportion of women with premorbid obesity - 47%. The incidence of diseases that complicate the course of pregnancy (chronic hypertension, gestational hypertension and preeclampsia) was highest in women with a BMI higher than 30 kg/m2. In the study groups, gestational arterial hypertension was the most common - 14%. Pregnancy complications, namely, fetal growth retardation/placental insufficiency, occurred with a frequency of 8% in the group with premorbid obesity. In pregnant women with a BMI of more than 30 kg/m2, acute/chronic fetal hypoxia was observed, the frequency of which in total was 10%. Complications of the fetus in the studied women showed that the risk of fetal hypoxia in pregnant women with a BMI above 30 kg/m2 is very high. Large fruit was found in 15% of cases of the total number of women studied, in groups with a BMI of more than 30 kg/m2, with a frequency equal to 10% of the total number. The number of births through the birth canal in women with a BMI of more than 30 kg/m2 was 28%, and the frequency of cesarean section operations was 24%. Conclusion. Women with a BMI above 30 kg/m2 have a high frequency of pregnancy complications (gestational arterial hypertension, preeclampsia, chronic arterial hypertension). A high frequency of perinatal pathology was revealed - acute/chronic fetal hypoxia, placental insufficiency, fetal growth retardation, macrosomia. Pregnant women with a high BMI should be closely monitored by an obstetrician-gynecologist, observe proper nutrition, monitor weight gain, and timely treat chronic diseases, in particular hypertension.
