Gestational Diabetes Classes
Gestational Diabetes: Introduction Class
In this initial group visit, you will be provided with a glucometer and instructed on its use during the remained of your pregnancy, including testing frequency and blood sugar goals. Diet and lifestyle measures will be reviewed including carbohydrate counting, nutrition label reading, and proposed meal plan.
Gestational Diabetes: Follow-up Class
This one week follow-up group visit is intended for women who have already attended the introduction class. During this visit, blood sugar readings are reviewed and if necessary, a referral will be placed to see a physician who specializes in diabetes during pregnancy.
