Using this information
Much of the care for women with diabetes who are having a baby is the same whether they already have diabetes before getting pregnant or develop diabetes during pregnancy (gestational diabetes). But there are some differences, which are described in this information.
If you already have diabetes before getting pregnant, see women who already have diabetes and care for all women with diabetes during pregnancy and during and after the birth.
If you are being tested for and/or are diagnosed with gestational diabetes, see women who develop diabetes during pregnancy and care for all women with diabetes during pregnancy and during and after the birth.
