Three posters being presented at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine 44th Annual Pregnancy Meeting examined the impact of continuous glucose monitoring on pregnancy outcomes.

Diabetes in pregnancy is known to put both the mother and child at-risk for numerous negative health outcomes, such as preterm delivery, birthweight extremes, congenital anomaly, stillbirth, admission to neonatal intensive care units, and even neonatal death.1 With 16% of pregnancies globally being impacted by pre-existing or gestational diabetes, managing the condition during pregnancy is essential.2

Continuous glucose monitors (CGM) have become an essential tool in monitoring diabetes, and can likely have a positive impact on disease management during pregnancy. Three posters being presented at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine 44th Annual Pregnancy Meeting examined the role CGM plays in pregnancy.
