The UK is experiencing a dramatic increase in prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Consequently there is a corresponding increase in T2DM in pregnancy, with 27% of pregnant women with pre-existing diabetes having T2DM. Although the risks to mother and baby are similar to type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), the approach and management often differ. Pregnant women with T2DM are more likely to be older, multiparous and live in deprived areas. Certain ethic groups are more prone to T2DM and there is a strong association with being overweight and obesity. Furthermore, some surveys have shown that women with T2DM often receive suboptimum care prior to conception and in early pregnancy, particularly in primary care. This paper presents an overview of the multidisciplinary management of T2DM in pregnancy and identifies areas where care may be improved for these women.
