Diagnostic criteria for Gestational Diabetes (GDM) have recently changed, and while general management strategies such as blood glucose monitoring, healthy eating and exercise are common to other types of diabetes, specific guidelines relevant to diabetes and pregnancy exist. This module was written by the team at Diabetes Australia (Victoria) and reviewed by a senior diabetes clinician in a Victorian tertiary health service. The scope of this module is to provide an overview of GDM for nurses and midwives to have a general understanding of how GDM is managed; exploring the principles of managing this condition both during pregnancy and after the baby is born.
