As a longtime journalist who has lived with Type 1 since 1977, I write about pregnancy and Diabetes. My book, Balancing Pregnancy With Pre-Existing Diabetes: Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby, (Demos Health, 2010) is the first insiders guide about what it takes to get and stay pregnant with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, and includes insights from more than 50 women with Diabetes as well as advice from top medical experts in the field of diabetes and pregnancy. The book also covers preconception, new motherhood, pregnancy loss and infertility. My blog, Managing the Sweetness Within, addresses the intersection of Type 1 Diabetes, infertility, and pregnancy. Whats it like to do each of them right? Its all about managing the sweetness within.
