We are a specialist team of Diabetologists, obstetricians, specialist nurses, dietitians and midwives who support women who have either pre-gestational diabetes, or who develop diabetes during their pregnancy (gestational diabetes).

We also offer a pre and post-pregnancy service for women with pre-gestational diabetes.

During pregnancy we offer regular ultrasound scans and appointments with the diabetes and obstetric teams to optimise the best care for women and their babies.

We provide women with support between appointments through telephone and email contact.
