This Series in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology examines the growing burden of maternal obesity worldwide in terms of its impact on clinical management and intergenerational health, and highlights the need for a focus on the pre-pregnancy period, along with a whole-of-society intervention approach, to reverse the cycle of ill health propagated by maternal obesity.

Professor Rebecca Reynolds, Centre for Cardiovascular Sciences, is among researchers whose findings on the burden of maternal obesity have been published.
