A lovely honest view on diabetes managment before, during and after pregnancy. Although most of this blog is universal, it is written for an American audience where there is more choice as to who manages your diabetes.

Although written for T1s in America, so references to the various HCPs and possibly some of the timings of scans may be different to the experiences of UK based T1s, this blog gives a helpful overview of pregnancy and allays many fears people may have. It also has a list of additional resources that may be useful, at the end of the blog.
