Description

Thinking out of the box and individualizing care should not be rare. Join our conversation as Blyss & Dr. Stu host midwife Lindsey Meehleis & Home Birth x 2, Diabetic Mom and Naturopathic Physician, Gina Cummins.

We unfold the layers of managing diabetes during pregnancy, where technology and personal determination intersect to create successful birth stories at home. Hear firsthand from Gina about her experiences with blood sugar control during the intensity of childbirth and the crucial role of cortisol in this process. Lindsey provides a professional backdrop, highlighting the evolution of diabetes management tools and the power of informed collaboration between healthcare providers and mothers-to-be.

Diabetes care and options have evolved much over the last 40 years. Have hospitals and doctors kept up?
