Infants of mothers with diabetes are at great risk for several problems, especially if blood glucose levels are not controlled carefully, including birth defects, stillbirth, macrosomia, birth injury, hypoglycaemia and respiratory distress etc. The baby’s treatment depends on how well blood sugar level is controlled in pregnancy during labour and delivery. Treatment is also depend on child’s symptoms, age and general health. Expectant women can control gestational diabetes by eating healthy foods, exercising and if necessary taking medication.
