hi all,

what is the policy for growth scan s for gdm. At what gestations are the scans performed and as a DSM does anyone review them.

We have implemented growth scans for ALL patients whose pregnancy is complicated by diabetes at 28, 32 and 36 weeks gestation. (HEFT)

All DSM's review the scans if we are seeing the patient and refer to an Obstetrician as required.

We have done the same as you Jenni. Scans are 28/32/36 weeks and again at 38 if we want to leave a GDM to deliver at T+.

DSMs review scans but we only do an extra scan at 36/40. No additional scanning is done at 28 or 32/40.

In Newcastle we offer 28,32 and 36 weeks scans for GDM, I suppose I do review scans but our sonographers tend to refer on if they are concerned about anyone, so not all of these women are seen in clinic following scan (only if they are Metformin or insulin treated, whereby an obstetrician will see them).
