Managing your Type 1 Diabetes is already a difficult task – but becomes especially hard to manage while pregnant!
We can’t wait to work with you towards a successful pregnancy!
Our team of Certified Diabetes Educators will work with your Endocrinologist & Obstetrician.
We provide continuing support prior, during and after your pregnancy.
Pre-Pregnancy Diabetes Counseling
If you have diabetes and are planning to have a baby, you need to get a game plan in place.
We work with you to achieve the best possible blood sugar control prior to conception of your baby. This includes developing and fine tuning your diabetes self-management skills, incorporating advanced diabetes care such as insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors and data downloading/analysis apps. We take all the necessary preventive health steps to ensure your health throughout your pregnancy.
Pregnancy Blood Glucose Management
Expectant moms with type 1 diabetes usually have major changes in their insulin requirements throughout their first, second and third trimester.
We frequently review your self-monitoring data and our team will work with you to make the necessary adjustments to keep you on track.
Pregnancy Lifestyle Consulting
We want your pregnancy to be a healthy one!
Our lifestyle specialists will provide ongoing coaching on nutrition, physical activity and any weight issues.
Postpartum Adjustment and Monitoring
Challenges to blood sugar control don’t end after delivery.
In fact, sudden changes in your weight, physical activity, hormone levels and even nursing patterns can create a blood sugar roller coaster. Our team will be there to help stabilize your blood sugar, so the time you spend with your new baby will be as safe as it is special.
