In this episode, we discuss all things gestational diabetes. This is a two-part episode as there was just so much we had to talk about. We start with gestational diabetes in pregnancy and next time we will be looking at it from the mother and baby perspective.
Listen in as Rachel gives us the most wonderful analogy about insulin and glucose wrapped up in the form of Pac-Man, and Rachel dissects some of the research to give us a greater understanding of testing for diabetes in pregnancy and what this all really means but when a mother is diagnosed with gestational diabetes.
This is a cracker of an episode and we'll be back with the 2nd part very soon! Get your lugholes ready coz here we go!
