Pregnancy and type 2 diabetes

"After a complicated pregnancy with Diabetes I am walking towards a happier, healthier future by taking on Glasgow Wellness Walk.

Having type 2 diabetes completely changed the pregnancy plan. And it was a complicated pregnancy.

Since my son Alexander James (AJ for short) was born 14 weeks ago, I always take him out in the pram and let him sleep. During pregnancy I met a group of friends who were also pregnant. And we were always going walking together, especially on maternity leave.

I live in Glasgow and walking is one of the cheapest activities. And the weather’s picking up now. It’s good not just for your diabetes but your overall wellbeing. My husband is going on the walk with me and we might bring little AJ in the pram."
