Gestational diabetes, which occurs during pregnancy, is marked by high blood sugar levels that might be due to hormone changes, and insulin resistance. In fact, moms with this type of diabetes may need up to three times as much insulin during pregnancy than before or after.
Women who develop gestational diabetes are likely to face the same issue with future pregnancies. These women also tend to develop type 2 diabetes later in life— the link may be explained by the similar risk factors for both type 2 and gestational diabetes.

Cesarean birth is a major abdominal surgery with or without medical condition. Elective cesarean is the choice of the mother/couple to have their baby at specific date and time of delivery. This question has disturbed me for quite some times. I realised that people choose delivery through cesarean have lots of Fear. These fears are due to fear of childbirth pain, fear of not being able to give birth due to carrying a “big size baby”, fear of the unknown-uncertainly of how birth will turn out to be, the fear of jeopardising the safety of the baby and that of the mother puts woman to think of a definitely outcome. i.e. elective cesarean birth.
