In this one-hour, online class, you’ll learn the basics of managing diabetes during pregnancy, including why it’s important to manage sugars, recommended eating patterns to help control blood sugars and goals for blood sugar management.
The class is taught by either Jennifer Lofy, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator; or Lauren Zink, a registered dietitian.
Note: While the online class is a great fit for most people, one-on-one visits with a diabetes educator are also available for some individuals.
Those with specific needs and/or obstacles to taking the online class — including very high blood sugar levels, preexisting health conditions, disabilities and/or if English isn’t their primary language — can ask a health care provider for a referral to the diabetes educator team.
These individual classes are offered via telehealth and in person, depending on your needs and location.
