Re: Perinatal outcomes after bariatric surgery: nationwide population based matched cohort study

Bariatric surgery will lead to macro and micronutrient deficiencies (including B12 deficiency). The milieu of intrauterine baby in obese mother ( either being treated by dieting or baritric surgery) is unfavourable or nutritionally deprived. In such a case won't it be tempting to borrow or hire the uterus of surrogate mother to implant the embryo (or fertilize the parents' gametes). It may (to be precise, "will") improve the foetal and perinatal outcome.
