home shoulder dystocia gestational diabetes

What Is Gestational Diabetes?

Diabetes During Pregnancy

Gestational diabetes is a risk factor for shoulder dystocia. Mothers who develop gestational diabetes may have larger babies (macrosomia) and have a higher risk of shoulder dystocia. Medical providers should assess the baby's estimated fetal weight before delivery to anticipate potential complications from shoulder dystocia.
