Becoming a mother can be an exciting and joyful time, but if you have an eating disorder, pregnancy can be both physically and emotionally challenging. Approximately 10 million American women experience an eating disorder which often peaks during childbearing years. Eating disorders during pregnancy are more common than expected. One out of every 21 pregnant women met the criteria for an eating disorder- anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, or an atypical eating disorder.
ANAD’s first book, Eating Disorders and Pregnancy: A Comprehensive Book for Women and Healthcare Professionals, by Patricia Santucci, MD, FAPA, FAED, ANAD’s medical director, aims to provide a thorough examination of this complex topic.
