Pre conception counselling for diabetes patients
Information and counselling provided to all women of reproductive age who has diabetes so that they are aware of the problems of diabetes in pregnancy, the potential dangers inherent in unplanned pregnancy, and the benefits of pre pregnancy counselling.
Several studies have established an association between high maternal glucose levels during embryogenesis and high rates of spontaneous abortions and major malformations in newborns. To reduce the risk of excess spontaneous abortions and congenital malformations in infants of diabetic mothers, diabetes care and education must begin before conception.
