Diabetes in Pregnancy

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes (GDM) is a condition where there is too much glucose (sugar) in your blood. It is a form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy. Learn more about how to manage GDM in the resources and videos on this page.

Gestational Diabetes Education Class

Our diabetes team run an education class for women newly diagnosed with GDM. Women who have had GDM previously are also invited to attend the class. In this class you will learn about managing GDM throughout your pregnancy. This includes information on food choices, physical activity, blood glucose testing and targets. There is also an opportunity to ask the diabetes team any questions you may have.
