Gestational diabetes, also called pregnancy induced diabetes, occurs in women who never had diabetes before but who have high blood sugar levels during pregnancy.
If you develop diabetes during pregnancy, you may need special medical care from our maternal-fetal physicians at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, MA. Our physicians and staff specialize in the care of high-risk pregnancies and provide the very best care for you and your baby.
We want to make your experience with us as comfortable as possible and will work with you to develop a care plan that meets your needs and lifestyle.
In addition, our Birthing/Maternity Center offers the setting, expertise and support you and your family need to have a healthy, positive birth experience.
