Diabetes in Pregnancy

Diabetes in Pregnancy

Officially recognized by the American Diabetes Association, the Diabetes in Pregnancy Education and Management Program provides early intervention and follow-up services to pregnant women with pre-gestational and gestational diabetes.

The program's multidisciplinary team consists of maternal fetal medicine specialists, a nurse practitioner/diabetes educator, a dietitian and a social worker. The multidisciplinary team approach allows patients to receive diabetes education immediately following diagnosis, along with ongoing, intensive monitoring of blood glucose and maternal-fetal well-being.

The program creates an ongoing dialogue between the patient and the diabetes specialists and primary care provider regarding blood glucose control, fetal growth and maternal-fetal well-being.
