Lead author of "Maternal weight characteristics influence recurrence of fetal macrosomic in women with normal glucose tolerance", Rhona Mahony examines the relationship between maternal weight and recurrence of fetal macrosomia in non-diabetic women delivering a second infant following first macrosomic pregnancy and finds that increased body mass index (BMI) elevated the risk of a recurrent macrosomic pregnancy.

Out of the 111 women who delivered a first macrosomic baby, about one-third gave birth to a second macrosomic infant. These women who had a second large baby were heavier at the start of the pregnancy compared to women without recurring macrosomic babies.

Another factor that increases the risk of recurrent macrosomic pregnancy is excessive maternal weight gain during pregnancy.
