Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is at once personal and prescriptive, providing equal
measures of practical information, support, and inspiration."
Peter Van Etten, President and CEO of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

The book is a nice easy read too.
Floreksa
So, when you read so much about the risks of parenting among diabetics, you can't help but think they may be on to something that all of us diabetics can learn from.
Manny Hernandez
This is an excellent book-- a must read for anyone with diabetes contemplating a family.

As a mom with Type 1 diabetes, Kathryn Gregorio Palmer addresses so many of the concerns that I have as a mom of two small children and a person with Type 1. There are tons of practical hints and "been there" stories in the book that made sense to me and have helped me to be better to myself so that I can be better for my family.

An honestly helpful self-help book!

I'm a mom with T1 diabetes and this book covers just about all of the concerns when one is a parent with diabetes. The great thing about the book is that its filled with tips and advice from other parents with diabetes.

The book is a nice easy read too. Not too medical and Kathryn Gregorio Palmer's "voice" is like that of an old friend.

Format: Paperback
I have been a type 1 diabetic for the last twenty years. Now approaching my late twenties, I'm thinking about starting a family and preparing my body for that adventure. Doctors tell me about what my A1c should be and how my numbers should ring in, but no one could tell me about what it would be like once the kid actually arrived. How was I going to manage my diabetes daily duties and the daily doodies of a baby? Was it possible? I was unsure and overwhelmed and no one could give me an honest answer.

Finding Kassie Palmer's book, "When You're a Parent with Diabetes," was exactly what I needed. She didn't gloss over her answers and offer platitudes and cliches about dealing with parenting - she gave Real Life situations and actually eased some of my anxieties about parenting.

I feel that I'm at least semi-ready to think about a family now. And that's saying an awful lot.

I would urge any diabetics who are thinking about starting a family to pick up this book. It's a must-read for anyone who wants both insulin bottles and formula bottles in their homes. :)

I just have to say that I am very impressed with this book! I wish it had been around for my first T1 pregnancy! Reading it really validated all of my frustrations about the sudden and drastic change in care once the baby was born. It also has realistic suggestions about how to deal with the frustrations of diabetes and explaining it to your kids. I can not begin to tell you how many times my child has snuck into my supply of juice boxes for low blood sugar! This book is wonderful and a must read for any mom with diabetes planning for a family. I can't stress how much I wish I had it the first time around! I'll be leaving it in my CDE for another 1st time mommy to read!

This book is a must read for anyone who has diabetes or knows someone with it. I am Type 1, and I can't tell you how difficult it was to constantly explain that yes, I can have children, yes, they will be fine, etc...and this book goes into detail about issues like that.

Kathryn did a great with this book, and I encourage everyone to read it!!!!
