Improved Outcomes = Lower Birth Costs

Early intervention and management of gestational diabetes addresses and helps prevent adverse clinical outcomes so moms and babies have healthier pregnancies and safe, less costly, deliveries.

  • Prevalence of gestational diabetes is on the rise with 6-9% of all pregnancies at risk
  • Adverse clinical outcomes include higher rates of Cesarian deliveries, shoulder dystocia, and time in the NICU for the newborn
  • By not avoiding these complications, cost of delivery can be nearly twice that of a healthy (non-gestational diabetes) delivery*
