Abstract INTRODUCTION: The application of bariatric surgery has recently spread among obese women including women of reproductive age. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We sought to present three cases of obese women undergoing bariatric surgery, their monitoring and complications during pregnancy. CONCLUSION: We suggest that conception should be postponed for at least 18 months after bariatric operation to avoid complications concerning both mother and fetus mainly associated with nutritional deficiencies due to the anatomical and physiological changes of such operations.
