Brief description Infants of women with diabetes in pregnancy have an increased risk of low blood sugar and other complications after birth and of developing diabetes and being obese later in life. Many maternity providers encourage these women to express breast milk before birth to have it available if the infant needs supplementary feeding. Evidence for this practice is lacking so we are planning the first study exploring the safety and effectiveness of antenatal expression of breast milk in late pregnancy for women with diabetes in pregnancy.
