What to expect from this webinar

Being diagnosed with diabetes, which may present for the first time in pregnancy or be already a condition you have been managing for a while, can be overwhelming. It comes with so many questions; like what to do about your diet, how it will impact your labour and of course what risks it poses to your unborn baby.

We want to turn this scary time back into one that is filled with excitement, by arming you with all the information you need to take back some of the control of your body and steer it in the right direction to minimise and impacts.

This webinar will provide you with a full understanding of what diabetes means in pregnancy, what targets you should aim for with your sugar levels and what factors the obstetricians will consider when discussing your labour and birth.  

This course is delivered by specialists, including obstetric doctors practicing in the NHS as well as a diabetic specialist midwife who is very experienced at managing women with diabetes of all forms and stages throughout pregnancy and birth.
