Women with diabetes need different types of support when pregnant. The technical aspect regarding what to expect and how to handle changes and how they will impact blood sugar levels are necessary and this book covers everything I can think of (and I write about diabetes for a living).
However, because women also have a huge emotional weight regarding what their blood sugar levels can potentially do to their precious unborn children, getting help with this aspect is also crucial. In this book, you get to follow Ginger, who is a wonderfully positive but realistic guide, along in her diary during her pregnancy and so you get the feeling that you're not alone, that these feelings are perfectly normal, and that others have been through this before. There is also a lot of information and guidance surrounding the worry and intense feelings that a diabetic pregnancy can conjure up.
I was struck by how professional, detailed, complete, and yet warm and friendly this book is. It's true, pregnancy with type 1 diabetes can be scary and challenging but with this resource a woman can feel confident that she knows what she needs to know in order to do it safely and successfully.
