Managing type 1 diabetes during pregnancy is an incredibly overwhelming yet rewarding pursuit. It’s about so much more than just counting your carbs and getting exercise. Due to constantly increasing hormones during pregnancy, your insulin needs constantly change, too. While no two women’s pregnancies will be alike, the timing of those anticipated insulin adjustments will be similar. In this book, Ginger Vieira and Jennifer Smith, CDE & RD, guide you through preparing for pregnancy, from conception to birth, and through the challenges of managing your blood sugars during postpartum.REVIEWS:” Wow, there’s so much information! The first part of the book, Preparing for Pregnancy, is presented quite well. It gives a WWT1D all the information she needs to prepare for pregnancy. But, I have to say, having lived vicariously through three pregnancies I think the Month-To-Month guide is brilliant. It should be read twice. First, all at once, to help a woman plan and prepare for the different stages of pregnancy. Then, slowly, as each phase opens and each experience becomes as emotional as it is physical. A wonderful guide. The personal testimonials that close out the book are a very nice touch.” -Victor Van Beuren, Senior Acquisitions Director of ADA Books”If you have type 1 diabetes and are contemplating having a baby, before you do anything—and that means anything at all—make sure you grab a copy of Pregnancy With Type 1 Diabetes by Ginger Vieira, CHC, CPT and Jennifer C. Smith, RD, CDE. The book is subtitled ‘Your Month-to-Month Guide to Blood Sugar Management,’ but it’s so much more, it will likely be referred to as ‘the Type 1 pregnancy bible’ before long.”-Nancy Kaneshiro,”Ginger and co-author Jennifer Smith wanted to create a guide specifically designed to help women with type 1 diabetes meet those challenges. As mothers with diabetes themselves, they know what it’s like to feel the fear of being pregnant while managing diabetes. Ginger has lived with type 1 diabetes and celiac disease since 1999, has written several books about diabetes, and is part of the editorial team at Jenny, a Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietitian, has lived with type 1 diabetes since 1990 and works as a diabetes coach for people across the globe. They will both soon be mothers of two children (Ginger is expecting her second child in May!). Their book Pregnancy with Type 1 Diabetes is not just an informative tool and resource, but is also a source of personal support, encouragement, and inspiration for all mothers-to-be with type 1 diabetes.”-Amelia Dmowska,
