A new study shows that babies born to women who were overweight or obese are less likely to be adopted by families who want them as a baby than babies born of normal weight parents.
The study, published this week in the journal Pediatrics, found that mothers with overweight or obesity are more likely to adopt a child with a congenital birth defect, which results in the birth of a baby who has low birth weight.
This is a very rare condition.
Researchers found that children born to mothers with congenital heart defects were more likely than their normal weight counterparts to be reared by their adoptive families, even after controlling for the birth defect.
Researchers examined data from a sample of 4,058 women born in 2009-2013 who were living with their mothers in the United States.
The researchers used data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, which includes information on the mother’s race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, income, and marital status.
The mothers in question were also asked to complete questionnaires on their parenting style and to provide information about their pregnancies.
Researchers compared the adoptive mothers to women whose mothers were normal weight or overweight.
They looked at the likelihood that adoptive mothers would adopt a baby with a birth defect as well as whether the adoptive mother would adopt the baby after giving birth.
The researchers found that when the mothers were born overweight or normal weight, they were twice as likely to have adopted the baby as those who were normal-weight.
The mothers who were born normal-sized were less likely than those who weren’t to adopt the birth defects.
The results were similar when the researchers compared the mothers with a history of congenital defects to mothers without one.
The authors say that while the data suggest that mothers born with congenitally-defective babies are less inclined to adopt children with birth defects, this does not prove that they are more willing to adopt these children.
Instead, the study highlights the importance of examining the impact of birth defects on the birth weight of a child and its birth family.
The findings suggest that while adopting children with congenito-defects may not be the best option for families with children with severe birth defects or the mothers of babies with severe congenital conditions, it may be an important option for adoptive families who have limited resources and who are trying to make decisions about whether to adopt.
“While it is unclear if birth defects affect adoptive families’ decisions to adopt, it is clear that the effects of birth defect on the adoption process are important for families seeking to adopt their children,” the authors write.
“It is also important to note that these findings are not generalizable to families who are adopting from other countries, where the birth condition is not as well known.”
