Pregnancy and diabetes

editorial image

Diabetes UK is hoping to hear from people who are interested in talking about their experiences of being pregnant and having gestational diabetes, Type 1 diabetes or Type 2 diabetes.

Coping with diabetes when you are pregnant can be really difficult – it requires a lot of work and dedication.

Most women with diabetes have a healthy baby, but diabetes does give you a higher risk of some complications so it’s important to prepare and get the care you need to reduce the risk to your own and your baby’s health.

That’s why we want to hear your stories so that we can help other women with diabetes understand the importance of planning and support when it comes to pregnancy.

We want to make sure that women have the best possible care and advice available to them.

If you would like to share your story, please email us at

We look forward to hearing from you.

To find out more about managing diabetes during pregnancy, visit or call our Careline on 0345 123 2399.
