About This Treatment Program

About the Diabetes in Pregnancy Program

The Diabetes in Pregnancy Program (DIPP) at Mass General is a collaborative program that brings together the Obstetrics Program in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Diabetes Unit in the Endocrine Division.

The DIPP provides comprehensive care for pregnant women with diabetes of all types, including type 1, type 2, gestational diabetes and other rare types. We also provide pre-conception consultations for women with diabetes who are thinking of getting pregnant.

Integrated Obstetric and Diabetes Care

As a DIPP patient, you receive your obstetric and endocrine care together in one place.

Even if your diabetes is well controlled before you get pregnant, pregnancy can change how your body reacts to certain treatments. Your diabetes can also have a big impact on your pregnancy. With the latest medical treatments, women with diabetes can have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

The DIPP team includes:

  • High-risk pregnancy specialists
  • Endocrinologists
  • Nurses with specialized training
  • Nutritionists

The DIPP team will follow you throughout your pregnancy and birth to ensure that you and your baby receive the best possible care.
