Find out how healthy you are with our simple calculator tools and see what changes you can make to help you have a healthier pregnancy.

Calculate your BMI

Your height
Your weight

BMI stands for body mass index, and this is a way for your health team to know whether you are a healthy weight for your height.

If you’re overweight, now is not the time to ‘crash’ diet though. The most important thing is to keep pregnancy weight gain at a healthy level.

Find out more about why managing your weight in pregnancy is important.
