Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) affects around 7% of pregnant women in America. Prevalence is increasing just as obesity is in the general population. Adverse effects of GDM for both mother and baby include the mother having a greater chance of needing C-section, preterm delivery, and hypoglycemia, and, for the newborn, hypoglycemia. Both have greater risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. The purpose of this study is to review the evidence for the most effective non-invasive and non-pharmacological interventions to reduce GDM.
