Somwhere over the Ramen-Bow

If you’re pregnant in Japan and your doctor tells you to lose weight, tell him to fuck a cactus.

Women in Japan are dangerous levels of underweight when giving birth resulting in cases of premature delivery and growth-restricted infants are at increased risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and obesity as adults.

A friend of mine who recently had a baby was told she needed to LOSE weight while pregnant because she was gaining it too fast, fortunately her pediatrician father was shocked at her Japanese doctors assesment and told her to tell him to shove it and find a new doctor.
