    Diabetes can affect women at any stage of life. If not managed properly, expectant mothers with pre-existing diabetes are more likely to encounter complications such as preeclampsia, cesarean section, and infections. Balancing Pregnancy with Pre-Existing Diabetes: Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby, is a down-to-earth guide for diabetic mothers-to-be. Author Cheryl Alkon has lived with type 1 diabetes for 31 years and brings a wealth of understanding to the subject. Unlike existing books written in dry scientific language, this one focuses on firsthand accounts by diabetic women sharing their pregnancy-related experiences. Topics include what is diabetes, finding the right doctor, strategies to successfully conceive, the first, second, and third trimesters, labor and delivery, balancing the woman's health needs with those of her child, infertility and pregnancy loss, resources, and more. Balancing Pregnancy with Pre-Existing Diabetes offers a complete guide for diabetic women who want to successfully plan their pregnancies.
