The West Midlands Regional Guidelines for the Management of Diabetes in Pregnancy have been developed by members of DiPAG in response to findings from the Confidential Enquiry.

During the enquiry process it was evident that there was great diversity across the region with regards to protocols/guidelines and the management of diabetic/maternity care during the antenatal, labour and postnatal period. Standardisation of care was felt to be an important issue in order to improve outcomes.

This clinical practice document provides detailed management plans and background information for health professionals to use when looking after women with diabetes at any stage during and following pregnancy.
