Study Brief: GooDMomS (Gestational Diabetes Management Study) is a unique program that focuses on glucose (“blood sugar”) control and weight management during and after pregnancy. Gestational diabetes, also known as GDM, is a type of diabetes that begins during pregnancy and can increase the chances of the mother and her infant developing adult diabetes later in life. The purpose of GooDMomS is to help women with gestational diabetes to have a healthy pregnancy and to teach them about good health habits after delivery that can lower the risk of adult diabetes in themselves and their children.
