Managing gestational diabetes with digital technology
Pregnancy is an exciting time for expecting parents. But for patients diagnosed with gestational diabetes, fear and uncertainty are also common. In this video, Stephanie Nicholson, diagnosed with gestational diabetes five weeks into her pregnancy, describes how the difficult to manage condition affected her life.
She’s not alone – one in eight pregnant patients are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Careful monitoring by the patient and their care team is needed to ensure the health of the parent and the child. The process can be inconvenient and arduous.
This is where we come in. We developed an app called MoTHer. The online platform replaces manual record-keeping by transmitting data directly from patients to their care team.
Join patients, health professionals, and the scientists behind the app to learn how gestational diabetes is easier to manage with MoTHer.
Hear from expectant mother Stephanie about how the technology offers her safety, convenience and peace of mind.
It’s not only patients who benefit. Health professionals from Mater Mothers’ Hospital and Redland Hospital share how the technology is easing the burden on the system and making effective care more accessible.
