Anaylsis: More Pregnancy Weight Causes Big Babies
In the story, Risks: Extra Pregnancy Weight Tied to Big Baby, the reporter used numbers to tell the story about how extra pregnancy weight can cause big babies.
The reporter used the numbers to express percentages. For example, "among women who were not diabetic, 19 percent of those who gained more than 40 pounds had large babies."
The numbers were not overwhelming and it helped to support the story. It helped me understand how many women are affected by excessive weight gain.
