Pregnancy and Diabetes
Having children is a big decision for anyone. If you are a woman who has diabetes, it is a decision that requires much more thought and careful planning.
Planning for a successful pregnancy
Diabetes UK’s Helpline often gets asked ‘Can I have a baby if I have diabetes?’ The answer is yes, many women who have diabetes (Type 1, Type 2 or gestational diabetes) have perfectly healthy pregnancies and wonderfully healthy babies. But this isn't to say that it's an easy experience – it requires a lot of work and dedication on your part. If you are planning to have a baby, or think you are pregnant, then it is vital that you speak to your diabetes care team.
