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 Endocrinology 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
- Nurses with specialized training
The DIPP team will follow you throughout your pregnancy and birth to ensure that you and your baby receive the best possible care.
The DIPP includes a multidisciplinary team of clinicians who specialize in treating pregnant women with diabetes to ensure you receive the most appropriate care for you. In addition to physicians, our team also includes nurse Chrissy Faitel, RN, and nutritionist Stacey Nelson, RD.
