Unfortunately the risks associated with pregnancy in a woman with Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2) continue to be high. However these risks can be reduced significantly with pregnancy planning and pre-pregnancy care. We report here the establishment of a regional pre pregnancy service and the interim results of its benefits. Pre pregnancy care is as vital as combined diabetes antenatal care for women with diabetes and must become the norm for this population.
