Gestational Diabetes?


#1

I have just been told I have Gestational Diabetes. I am obviously pregnant. Not sure if this is the best support group for me or not. But I can’t seem to find one for my specific needs. I know nothing about Diabetes. (Well… I guess I know the basics and have a general idea). But I know very little. Is this a good group for me to be a part of, or should I be somewhere else? Thanks in advance!
