This is important information for women with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes who are or might become pregnant. It has been prepared by doctors and nurses in the Eastern region to help patients. Planning a pregnancy, should be an enjoyable and safe experience for a woman. A woman should make an appointment with her GP/ practice nurse or diabetes team as soon as possible 6 -12 months before stopping contraception. Most women with diabetes have normal pregnancies resulting in healthy babies, but having diabetes does increase the chance of serious complications both for the woman and her baby. Pregnancy-planning is important because most of the damage is done very early, (during the first 6 weeks of pregnancy, which is before many women know they are pregnant).
