Report highlights increased risk of pregnancy complications for women with diabetes

Report highlights increased risk of pregnancy complications for women with diabetes Many women with diabetes who become pregnant are at increased risk of complications because of a lack of preparation for pregnancy, according to a new report.

The National Pregnancy in Diabetes Audit 2015, published by NHS Digital, Diabetes UK and the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) found that few women with diabetes who become pregnant are well prepared, despite agreed national guidelines - resulting in increased risk of congenital abnormalities, stillbirth and large babies.
