Pregnancy & Diabetes

Expert guidance and support for a happy, healthy pregnancy

Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM)
Pregnancy can be an exciting time, but it can also be a stressful time for many women, especially those who develop GDM along the way. While a GDM diagnosis can come as a shock, it’s my job to simplify the process for you, ease the overwhelm and empower you to make informed decisions that support you and your baby.

As a credentialled diabetes educator and midwife, I specialise in gestational diabetes management. My experience allows me to hone in on your unique needs, develop strategies and help you take practical action that keeps you feeling calm, balanced and in control.

It’s natural to be concerned about managing gestational diabetes, but with awareness, diligence and good medical care, it’s still possible to have a complication-free pregnancy and keep your baby healthy.

My GDM management service includes...

What is gestational diabetes and why did it happen to you
Dietary advice to manage your diabetes - all while nourishing yourself with the nutrients you and your baby need
Explaining the possible implications of untreated GDM for your baby and child
Equipment and training to test your blood sugars in the comfort of your home
A safe, suitable exercise program to assist in managing diabetes during pregnancy
Hands-on management and care, regular review and data monitoring through your pregnancy
How to administer insulin injections safely (if required)
Recommended follow up and advice for your future health to minimise progression to Type 2 diabetes
If you’ve been recently diagnosed or are unsure about managing gestational diabetes,
book in a complimentary call with me to discuss the options best suited for you and your baby.

Pregnancy with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes

Diabetes during pregnancy can be an overwhelming time. As a midwife and credentialled diabetes educator, I have over 30 years of experience supporting women on this journey and work closely with you, your endocrinologist and obstetrician. My service helps you prepare for pregnancy physically and mentally, while ensuring your diabetes control is safe to minimise implications to you and your baby. Technology helps you achieve the best control of your diabetes. I review your glucose data regularly and may suggest updating devices to best suit you and your pregnancy journey.
