I am the editor of Diabetic Mommy Online Magazine - DiabeticMommy.com
I am a type 2 diabetic, and had to start insulin when I got pregnant with my son. At that time I felt there was little information on pregnancy and diabetes and this little book was a God-send.
I was not a diabetes expert by any means, so this booklet was great for giving me a frame of reference for all the new information that was suddently being shoved in my direction. When you are a newly pregnant diabetic, many times you can find yourself overwhelmed by all the information they want you to learn NOW. As time passed, I realized much of the information I was getting in kits, booklets, pamphlets and information sheets was just the same information rehashed over and over. The reason why I was able to mentally organize the information and stop feeling like I was in another country when it came to diabetes terms was because of this book.
I've looked at the other reviews and see that many of the negative reviews came from type 1 diabetics. And, I can understand why they would feel this way. They most likely have lived most of their life with this disease, and this little booklet goes over a lot of stuff they already know.
This is a little book, about 75 pages. It contains 10 brief chapters and sections with the following titles:
Diabetes, Pregnancy & You
How Your Baby Develops
What to Expect in Nine Months
Diabetes During Pregnancy
Nutrition, Diabetes, and Pregnancy
Exercise, Diabetes, and Pregnancy
Monitoring Your Diabetes
Problems Associated with Diabetes
More About Pregnancy
Tests to Expect During Your Pregnancy
Labor and Delivery
Making the Choice
