Pregnancy and diabetes: new ‘toolkit’ from JDRF for Type 1s

Rowena Gracey and son George - Pregnancy Toolkit

Type 1 diabetic Rowena Gracey and her son George.

Type 1 diabetes charity JDRF has launched its brand new Pregnancy Toolkit. The Toolkit is packed with lots of useful information for UK people living with the condition and planning a pregnancy. If you have Type 1 diabetes there are some extra things to think about and the new free Toolkit – written with input from healthcare professionals, JDRF volunteers and women with Type 1 diabetes – helps explain the best way to achieve a healthy pregnancy for both mum and baby.

The Pregnancy Toolkit comes after JDRF funded researchers found that people with type 1 diabetes tend to have fewer children on average than those without the condition. The Toolkit covers each trimester of pregnancy, helping mums-to-be understand what to expect and how their management of Type 1 diabetes will be affected by their growing baby. There is also a helpful pre-pregnancy checklist of things you need to think about before trying for a baby. Additional chapters cover the birth and post-pregnancy. The free toolkit is available to download here.
