    Gestational Diabetes

    Māori health literacy research: Gestational diabetes mellitus
    July 2014 

    This report was prepared for the Ministry of Health by Carla White, Susan Reid and Victoria Damiris from Workbase Education Trust

    The research project found that women who had not experienced GDM were unlikely to know about GDM prior to it being discussed during a pregnancy. The decision of Māori women to be screened for GDM is significantly influenced by the information, advice and support they receive from their lead maternity carer and their personal advisors.
