At Maternal Fetal Medicine Associates, we offer a Gestational Diabetes Program for women who are diagnosed with diabetes before or during their pregnancy. This program includes diabetes counseling and education, glucose monitoring, and fetal surveillance, as well as high-attention services to ensure positive pregnancy outcomes.

The Gestational Diabetes Support Program includes:

  • A perinatal consultation with a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist to review the pathophysiology of gestational diabetes, perinatal risks to mother and fetus, obstetrical risks, maternal and fetal surveillance, labor and delivery management and postpartum evaluation
  • Nutritional education and referrals to specialized dieticians
  • Glucometer and fingerstick education by trained staff
  • Medication initiation and management (both oral anti-glycemic agents and insulin)
  • Weekly review of blood glucose levels with a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist (more frequent if necessary) and regular communication with the referring physician
  • Perinatal ultrasounds for estimated fetal weight and biophysical testing as indicated
