Given the increasing incidence of type 1 diabetes, the recent emergence of type 2 diabetes as a condition that can begin during childhood, and the increasing prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus, the number of women who have some form of diabetes during their pregnancies is increasing. The perceptions and expectations of women with diabetes during pregnancy may affect their psychological response to pregnancy as well as their behaviour during and after pregnancy. This article provides an overview of the epidemiology of diabetes in pregnancy, including diabetes diagnosed before pregnancy and gestational diabetes mellitus. Then, the limited number of studies about women's perceptions of diabetes and pregnancy, based on interviews conducted during or shortly after pregnancy, are reviewed. We present information about how health professionals may manage these perceptions and expectations, based on the findings of these studies, as well as areas for future research.
