The Diabetes in Pregnancy Service provides specialized and personalized care for women with type 1, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and women who are risk of developing diabetes during pregnancy.
With a physician referral our team sees women before pregnancy, during pregnancy and after the baby is born.
Our goal is the help pregnant women with diabetes to have normal blood glucose (blood sugar) levels and lower the risk of diabetes related complications.
Each woman's care is special and different. You are the key player in the management of your diabetes and your diabetes team at BC Women's is here to help.
Our diabetes team which includes endocrinologists (diabetes doctors), nurse educators, dietitians, physiotherapists and a social worker works closely with you (the patient) and the other health care providers (e.g. family physicians, midwives, obstetricians).
The diabetes health care team will help you:
- Learn about and become confident in managing your diabetes
- Have fewer diabetes-related complications for you and your baby.
