Gestational Diabetes

Midwife Amanda


As well as being a brilliant midwife, Amanda is also a highly regarded diabetes educator specialising in diabetes in pregnancy. She is the current sitting Vice President of the Australian Diabetes Educator Association. Should you be diagnosed with gestational diabetes, we will arrange for you to sit down with Amanda so together you can formulate a plan to closely monitor your blood sugar levels. She will also educate and help you introduce some lifestyle and diet changes to give you the best chance of avoiding the need to start insulin.


Dr Amanda Beech

Should your blood sugars not adequately respond to diet and lifestyle changes, we may have the need to include Endocrinologist Dr Amanda Beech into our team. Amanda is also an obstetric physician and has done a breadth of training in how to best care for any pregnancy related medical issue. 
She will discuss your medical options in blood sugar management (it doesn’t always mean needles). Just as importantly, Amanda will follow you up after you have had your baby to make sure your everything has been carefully considered and controlled, to optimise your long term health and that of any future pregnancies.
