In this episode I bring you the evidence on labor induction for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). A few months ago, we released an article all about the evidence on diagnosing GDM, and we wanted to follow up that article with another focused solely on labor induction versus expectant management for GDM.
Listen to learn the two most common questions that people ask when they are diagnosed with GDM, as well as all of the situations that may occur under the umbrella term “expectant management”. And of course, I will cover the latest research studies on this topic!
