Will my baby get affected by anorexia during pregnancy?

Yes. Women who have anorexia while they are pregnant are more likely to lose the baby. If a woman with anorexia doesn't lose the baby, she is more likely to have the baby early, deliver by C-section, deliver a baby with a lower birth weight, and have depression after the baby is born.

This answer is based on source information from The Federal Government Source for Women's Health Information.
