Diabetes is one of the most common medical conditions complicating pregnancy. Gestational diabetes, or diabetes with onset or first recognition in pregnancy, may complicate between 2% and 20% of pregnancies, depending on the criteria used and the underlying diabetes risk in the population. Type 1 or type 2 diabetes typically complicate between 1 in 200 and 300 pregnancies and both have major implications for mother and child. In the last 10 years dramaticincreases in obesity and type 2 diabetes have been noted in most populations and these are now accompanied by an increase in prevalence of obesity complicating pregnancy, type 2 diabetes in pregnancy andgestational diabetes. This volume summarises key aspects of the medical management of diabetes during pregnancy with an emphasis on clinical management. The volume is designed for all members of the multidisciplinary team caring for women with diabetes during their pregnancy and serves as a practical introduction particularly for obstetricians and endocrinologists in training to the management of diabetes during pregnancy.RCOG, London. http://www.rcog.org.uk/womens-health/clinical-guidance/ antenatal-corticosteroids-prevent-respiratory-distress-syndrome-gree Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (2005).
