Too much sugar in your blood can be harmful to you and your baby.

What does this mean?

If you have diabetes when you are pregnant it might go away after you have your baby, but the diabetes might come back later in life. Therefore, it is important to get your blood sugar levels tested often.

What should I do?

If you have diabetes, you will need to follow a healthy diet and receive treatment from the clinic to help you control your blood sugar levels.
