Pregnancy is a time of excitement and anticipation, but it also comes with increased health considerations. Gestational diabetes, a condition that develops during pregnancy, requires careful management to ensure the wellbeing of both the mother and the baby. In this blog, we’ll explore the potential consequences of uncontrolled gestational diabetes and shed light on how it can impact the baby.
The potential consequences of uncontrolled gestational diabetes highlight the importance of proactive management during pregnancy. Regular prenatal care, monitoring blood sugar levels, adopting a healthy lifestyle, and following healthcare provider recommendations are crucial to minimising risks for both the mother and the baby.
