Twenty-eight Aboriginal women and 112 age-matched controls were identified from a retrospective chart review of deliveries over a 1-year period in northern Victoria. Significantly more Aboriginal women were screened for gestational diabetes and met criteria for the diagnosis of gestational diabetes. Overall mode of delivery was similar amongst the two groups. Babies born to Aboriginal mothers were significantly smaller and less likely to be breast fed than those from the non-Aboriginal group.
