Healthy pregnancy

Pregnancy is usually an exciting and life-changing period. Many milestones will be anticipated, as mommy gets to hear baby’s heartbeat at around 8 weeks, she gets to count the fingers and toes around 10 weeks but also, she gets to do the gestational diabetes screening around week 24 to 28.

 

Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar levels developed only during pregnancy and it may affect any pregnant woman. Because gestational diabetes can hurt you and your baby, it is very important to take action now!

 

Here are some tips to help you have a happy and healthy pregnancy, even with gestational diabetes:

 

Eat healthy:

Regular balanced meals, smaller portions and a variety of foods will be your starter kit. Try to include more colorful vegetables and less fat, sugar and starch.  

 

Exercise regularly:

You might not always feel the energy but remember that physical activity is very important to lower your blood sugar! Be safe with the choice of exercise and start with a daily walk.

 

Take medication/insulin:

When diet and exercise alone aren’t enough to bring down the blood sugars, you may need to start medication as instructed by your Doctor. This will be very important to keep you and your baby healthy.

 

Test blood sugar:

You are motivated and started with the lifestyle change…how can you check the impact of the change on your blood sugars? Monitor your blood sugar levels, as advised by your Doctor. Remember it’s only temporary!

Gestational diabetes and a healthy baby…yes! Follow the tips and work with your healthcare provider. You are not alone; you have all the support you need for you and your baby.

Success Stories

Nasser, 52

Diabetes Program

I have been living with type 2 diabetes for 5 years now. I used to struggle to maintain my blood sugar levels under control. Droobi has truly changed my life! My blood sugars are at target now, I lost some weight and changed my eating habits. I am so happy with the daily support I receive from my health coach. They are always super-supportive and positive even in my worse days. I really don't know what would I do without my personal coach. Thank you Droobi for helping me live better with diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes Program

On my 3rd pregnancy, I was informed after doing a test that I had gestational diabetes. I was really shocked because I was healthy in my previous pregnancies. When my doctor recommended Droobi, I thought I will give it a try. My health coach was super reactive and very helpful. She supported me in tracking my blood sugars and make the right food choices every single day. The program helped me overcome my fear and have a healthy delivery and baby. I am still using it even after giving birth.

Prevention program

​I have heard about Droobi online and I decided to give its Prevention Program a try, given that diabetes runs in my family. It’s a very easy program, small steps made me lose weight, exercise more, and reduce the risk of getting chronic disease. Great simple app that offers the support, through reminders, tracking tools, lessons and professional coaches. I’ve been using it over a year and I would recommend it to anyone.
