Gestational diabetes develops during pregnancy and usually disappears after giving birth. Any women can develop gestational diabetes but you are at risk if:

  • Your body mass index (BMI) is above 30
  • One of your parents has diabetes
  • You had gestational diabetes in previous pregnancy
  • You previously had a baby who weighed 4.5kgs or more at the time of birth
  • The origins of your family are Chinese, Asian, African-Caribbean, or Middle-Eastern

If any of these apply to you, you may be at the risk of gestational diabetes. Most women who have gestational diabetes deliver normal babies. However, if gestational diabetes goes uncontrolled, it may cause certain complications.

Gestational diabetes may go away on its own after birth but women who have had it are more like to develop type 2 diabetes in the future. In that case, gestational diabetes may also occur in future pregnancies as well.
