Diabetes and pregnancy
It is well documented that planning a pregnancy significantly improves the outcomes and reduces risks during pregnancy. Within the Northern Trust we have pre conception diabetes clinics. Your General Practitioner can refer you to this clinic if you are not known to the diabetes service. The clinics are held weekly in Antrim and Ballymena.
Gestational and antenatal diabetes care.
Many pregnant people can develop diabetes during pregnancy, especially in the third trimester. We offer a rapid access to this clinic supported by a midwife, Diabetes Specialist Nurse, Diabetologist and Obstetrician. These clinics take place in Antrim Area Hospital.
