Why I love working in the area of Gestational Diabetes!
I genuinely love my work and I feel really lucky to be doing the work I do. A big part of my work is educating women who have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes during their pregnancy.
The first reason I really enjoy working with these women diagnosed with gestational diabetes is that they are generally so interested in learning and are so motivated to make changes. They ask wonderful questions and are keen to learn. The second reason I love my work is that I love knowing that I am helping multiple people at one time. The effects of nutrition during pregnancy can set up the metabolic health of the offspring and future generations. It is such a powerful time in terms of nutritional impacts.
