Hi! I am a nursing student and I am working on completing a project on the occurrence of gestational diabetes and diabetes as a whole in pregnancy and the associated risks. Would any of you midwives out there be willing to answer some questions? These are the questions I have:

1. Have you seen an increase in gestational and pre-diabetes over time? And if so, why do you think that is.

2. What complications have you seen in both mothers and infants either before or after birth? Any other risks associated with it?

3. Do you see it reoccurring in mothers (Gestational diabetes)?

4. Are C-sections more common in these mothers?

5. What is follow up like after birth? While still in the hospital or out.

6. What is the role you play with mothers who have diabetes? (Of any type)

7. How long have you been working in this field/anything else about yourself? :)

8. Anything else I should know?

Thank you so much!
