Dietitic support for women with gestational diabetes

In my Midwife-led project for supporting newly diagnosed gestational diabetes, I led the self management clinic supported by a dietitian (one hour per week) and Trained Health Advocate demonstrating the glucometer. I reviewed all these wormen the following week. The pathway for these women are to retrun to Community Midwife care or referral to the multidisciplinary clinic for treatment. The Dietitician is present for one day a week at the multidisciplinary clinic to support women commencing treatment.
