There are estimated to be 4 million adults living with Diabetes in the UK, 44% of which are women. This event, chaired by Suzanne White, will look at unique challenges faced by women living with the condition, particularly during pregnancy. Common complications, how healthcare professionals are managing risk and insight from a Leigh Day client from a patient’s lived experience.

  • Nadine Montgomery 

Clare Tower is a Consultant Obstetrician Central Manchester & Manchester Children’s Foundation Trust. Clare has written previously about the impact of pregnancy when the mother has diabetes.
