Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes that can occur in pregnancy. The condition usually goes away once the baby is born, however women who have had gestational diabetes are at higher risk of future type 2 diabetes.

These pages will help you to understand gestational diabetes, how it is managed and where to get the information and support you need.
