Tissue Deposition

Weight gain during pregnancy consists of the fetus, placenta, and amniotic fluid (the products of conception) and the extra growth of several maternal tissues. The deposition of fat in pregnancy is presumed to help meet the extra energy demands of lactation. The total energy deposited as new tissue, excluding maternal fat, averages approximately 49 MJ (11 700kcal). If an average maternal fat gain of 2.6 kg is assumed, then the estimate of the total energy deposited as new tissue during an average pregnancy is approximately 174 MJ (41600kcal) (Table 1).
