Diabetes & Pregnancy

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that only shows up in pregnancy, around the 2nd or 3rd trimesters, and usually goes away after your baby is born.  Your diabetes team, which includes a Registered Dietitian, Registered Nurse and an Endocrinologist will help you learn how to stay healthy with Gestational Diabetes.  Here is some information to get started.
