A retrospective study of 97 patients with pregnancy complicated by Diabetes Mellitus was carried out. An in‐patient management regime was undertaken with combined care by the obstetrician and endocrinologist. Common antenatal complications encountered were urinary tract infections and pre‐eclampsia. A policy of routine induction of labour at 38 weeks gestation was adopted unless delivery was mandated earlier. The caesarean section rate was 41%. There were 2 perinatal deaths, both due to lethal congenital defects.
