One of my readers would like to share her story about being diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I found her story very inspirational! Please read about how she coped with the diagnosis, managed to keep her blood sugars under control, had a healthy and low-risk pregnancy, and got the un-medicated, evidence-based birth she wanted (minus a little unnecessary bedrest).
Read her story about being diagnosed with gestational diabetes here.
And her inspirational birth story is here.
Stay tuned– I plan to post more about gestational diabetes later this summer. Does gestational diabetes always mean big babies? Does it always mean induction? Does this mean you are now considered “high risk?” Should you be worried about getting Type II diabetes after your baby is born?
