You may need to monitor your blood sugar levels more closely – we can help you devise a plan for monitoring your levels; and also educate you and your family on how to interpret and act on those levels. We can also refer you to other expert allied health members, like dietitians or exercise physiologists, who can tailor a nourishing meal plan and show you some safe ways to exercise during pregnancy.
