Nutrition Education for Diabetes during Pregnancy

(IRB#: IRB_00167234)

This study is to better understand the thoughts and feelings of people who are pregnant with diabetes and have been in a nutrition education program. Diabetes during pregnancy known as gestational diabetes (GDM) is a common issue. We want to hear input and ideas for developing a new nutrition education program for people with this issue. People in this study will complete a brief survey and join a focus group to discuss their experiences along with a follow-up one on one conversation about nutrition. The focus group will be video, and audio recorded. The information will then be written word for word with no names identified. What we learn will help us better know how to develop a nutrition education program for people with GDM.
