I see that our old friends from National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recently put their noses into the issue of obesity levels among pregnant women.
NICE has issued new guidelines encouraging women in England to attain a healthy weight before they get pregnant, and it advises pregnant women against eating for two once they conceive.
There is of course a wee fly in NICE's oinkment, many women become pregnant without actually planning the precise moment of conception (ie many pregnancies are unplanned).
How, therefore, are women meant to achieve the "optimal" pre pregnancy weight if they do not know when they are to become pregnant?
Could it be that NICE would prefer all women to obtain Nanny's permission (eg via a weight check certificate etc) before conceiving?
It wouldn't surprise me at all!
