Staying Healthy with Diabetes – Planning and Managing Your Pregnancy
Joslin Diabetes Center is pleased to announce the publication of Staying Healthy with Diabetes -- Planning and Managing Your Pregnancy written by Suzanne Ghiloni, RN, BSN, CDE and the staff of Joslin Diabetes Center – reviewed and edited by Florence M. Brown M.D. The book provides comprehensive information for women with diabetes who want to have a baby or who are already pregnant, and also addresses gestational diabetes, which is a form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy.
For a woman who manages her diabetes carefully during pregnancy and has no complications of diabetes, the outlook for a successful outcome is now 97% likely -- an all time high. Joslin Diabetes Center, through its research, care and education, has been the leader in this effort.
Planning and Managing Your Pregnancy explains the effects of pregnancy on diabetes and of diabetes on pregnancy, how preconception planning can reduce risks to the mother and baby, as well as what one needs to know about glucose management, nutrition, and exercise in order to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Labor, delivery and postpartum care are also discussed.
