Post Partum Gestational Diabetes Program

The Next Phase

Healthy Babies Need Healthy Moms Diabetes Prevention Class

Women who have had GDM are at a higher risk for the development of type 2 diabetes.  It is important to have your sugars rechecked with the 2 hour 75 gram glucose tolerance test at least 6 weeks after you deliver your baby. During our postpartum class we will rescreen your sugar level and teach you information about changes you can make to both your diet and exercise habits to help prevent yourself from developing diabetes. In addition we will give you helpful tips for promoting healthy lifestyle habits for your entire family. Please bring  a picture of your baby to this class!
