Diabetes and pregnancy care

Women with diabetes should be empowered to have a positive experience of pregnancy and childbirth. Providing the right information, advice and support about diabetes and pregnancy reduces the risk of complications to mother and baby.

Use the following resources and tools to improve care for women with diabetes before, during and after pregnancy.

Compared to women without diabetes, women with diabetes are:

  • Five times more likely to have a preterm baby
  • Three times more likely to have a Caesarean section
  • Two times more likely to have a baby weighing more than 4kg
