Pregnancy and diabetes national guidance23rd February 2011
The Royal College of Midwives and NHS Diabetes have published joint guidance for managing pregnant women with diabetes.
The document “Lead Midwife in Diabetes: Standards, Role and Competencies” outlines previously unavailable standards for the role and practice of midwives undertaking a midwifery lead in the care of women with diabetes who are pregnant, or women who develop diabetes during pregnancy. Figures show that diabetes has an impact on pregnancy and birth outcomes and women with diabetes are five times more likely to have stillbirths.
