The Ohio GDM Postpartum Care Learning Collaborative developed several resources to aid providers in the treatment and care plan for women diagnosed with GDM. In consultation with nationally-recognized subject matter experts, along with feedback from participating providers across Ohio, a clinical toolkit and consumer resources have been developed for providers and support staff.
Uncontrolled gestational diabetes during pregnancy can lead to high birth weight (>10), jaundice, preterm birth, or other conditions in the baby. Additionally, moms that had GDM are likely to experience a reoccurrence in future pregnancies or develop Type 2 Diabetes. In response to this growing problem, we have developed key information for both providers and consumers on GDM and Type 2 Diabetes.
