We currently induce our women with gestational diabetes who are well controlled on diet at 39 weeks gestation.

Hi Beverley,

Women with gestational diabetes who are well controlled on diet should be treated as low risk. Inducing these woment at 39 weeks is obstetrically an intervention and leading to cascade of interventive events. RCM campaign for normality should be promoted with these group of women. In my experience, these women will be labouring in the birthing unit should they proceed to spontaneous onset of labour.
