Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes is usually a temporary condition that occurs during pregnancy. It happens because your body is unable to produce enough insulin to control your blood sugars.

This condition can cause your baby to grow larger than normal and increase the risk of a caesarean section birth.

This condition is very common and, if found early, can be managed and treated.

See more information about gestational diabetes on the Humber and North Yorkshire Maternity Website.
