The West Midlands Regional Guidelines
for the Management of Diabetes in Pregnancy have
been developed by members of DiPAG in response to
findings from the Confidential Enquiry.
During the enquiry process it was
evident that there was great diversity across the
region with regards to protocols/guidelines and the
management of diabetic/maternity care during the
antenatal, labour and postnatal period. Standardisation
of care was felt to be an important issue in order
to improve outcomes.
This clinical practice document
provides detailed management plans and background
information for health professionals to use when
looking after women with diabetes at any stage during
and following pregnancy.

Diabetes in Pregnancy Launch Event for consultation

updated for the final edition
