key priorities for implementation
Key priorities for implementation
  • Pre-conception care
  • Antenatal care
  • Neonatal care
  • Postnatal care
pre conception care 1
Pre-conception care: 1
  • Inform women with diabetes who are planning to become pregnant that establishing good glycaemic control before conception and continuing this throughout pregnancy will reduce the risk of miscarriage, congenital malformation, stillbirth and neonatal death.
  • It is important to explain that risks can be reduced but not eliminated.
pre conception care 2
Pre-conception care: 2

The importance of avoiding unplanned pregnancy should be an essential component of diabetes education from adolescence for women with diabetes.

Offer pre-conception care and advice to women with diabetes who are planning to become pregnant before discontinuing contraception.

antenatal care 1
Antenatal care: 1

If it is safely achievable, women with diabetes should aim to keep fasting blood glucose between 3.5 and 5.9 mmol/litre and 1-hour postprandial blood glucose below 7.8 mmol/litre during pregnancy.

Advise women with insulin-treated diabetes of the risks of hypoglycaemia and hypoglycaemia unawareness in pregnancy, particularly in the first trimester.

antenatal care 2
Antenatal care: 2
  • Admit pregnant women who are suspected of having diabetic ketoacidosis immediately for level 2 critical care where they can receive both medical and obstetric care.
  • Offer women with diabetes antenatal examination of the four-chamber view of the fetal heart and outflow tracts at 18–20 weeks.
antenatal care 3
Antenatal care: 3

At the booking appointment screen for risk factors

  • How can we promote pre-conception services to support women with diabetes to plan for pregnancy?
  • How can we ensure women with risk factors for gestational diabetes are identified?
  • What more do we need to do to ensure appropriate referrals are made to joint diabetes and antenatal clinics?
  • What should we be doing to ensure that we are providing annual follow up of lifestyle advice and fasting blood glucose testing to women diagnosed with gestational diabetes?
