Diabetes and Infectious Diseases Lead Midwife
As both the lead for diabetes and Infectious diseases I have a very varied role and love following the journeys that you have.
The team run our clinics on Fridays working with both our Endocrine team and the Obstetric team offering a ‘one stop shop’ for those women who are a pre-existing diabetic and those who have Gestational diabetes requiring medication. The team contact all our newly diagnosed gestational diabetics and give information to maintain a safe delivery for both you and baby. The service also offers assistance with harvesting colostrum before the baby is born to for reduce the chance of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) in the baby.
Within my role as Infectious disease midwife I have forged close links with both the women and genito-urinary clinic (GUM) at Gravesend hospital. This link offers seamless care of all women and families by enabling them you to gain confidence with your own care and delivery.
I am also part of the Professional Midwifery Advocate team.
