Diabetes can begin during pregnancy and is a common complication. Every year, 2-10% of pregnancies in the US are affected by gestational diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
This National Diabetes Awareness Month, we give the spotlight to moms and moms-to-be wherever they are – at home, at work, in the military – and support their awareness of diabetes during pregnancy and how it increases risks of developing this chronic disease later in life for both mother and baby.
We salute you!
Show moms and moms-to-be some love by learning more about gestational diabetes and telling her you appreciate how hard she works for those she loves and serves, especially if she is in the military.
