Most women with diabetes have a normal pregnancy resulting in a healthy baby. However, having diabetes does increase the chances of complications for both mother and baby. Planning and preparing for a pregnancy with your diabetes team can substantially reduce that risk. Professor Fidelma Dunne and her team explain the risks involved with diabetes in pregnancy and how to reduce these risks to ensure the best possible outcome for both mother and baby with type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.
