Welcome to Diabetes and Pregnancy!
Are you expecting? Do you feel as though no one really understands what you go through on a daily basis? Are you afraid of doing something wrong? Would you like to learn how to do things to minimize the risks to you and your baby?
Whether you have type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, or gestational diabetes, we are here to provide you with evidence-based research and tools to help you have a healthy, safe, and wonderful birth experience.
We are dedicated to providing evidence-based information to parents, doulas, and the general public about diabetes during pregnancy.
Our goal is to empower pregnant people, their families, and doulas by providing them with accurate, up-to-date information about diabetes and pregnancy and help to enable informed decision-making.
We aim to reduce the risk of preventable birth defects and other conditions by educating birthing people about their choices.
We help facilitate conversations between families and their care providers and empower you to be an active participant in your health care instead of another number.
Diabetes During Pregnancy
Diabetes during pregnancy can be stressful, no matter which type of diabetes you have. You will have highs and lows all along the way. Luckily, our diabetes expert, type 1 diabetic mom, and The Diabetic Doula, Karina Robinson, can teach you how to lower the risks of complications for both you and your baby.
If you have diabetes, you can still have a healthy baby and a great birth experience.
