It occurs when the hormones produced during pregnancy make it difficult for your body to use insulin properly, putting you at an increased risk of insulin resistance. 

Charlotte told Dr Sophie Newton: ‘I am struggling mentally with everything. It’s mentally draining, feeling like this.’  

Talking about having to overhaul her diet following her diagnosis, she continued: ‘I think it’s probably getting to me as well, if I’m down I usually have chips and gravy… and I can’t!

‘I’m just so worried about doing anything to the baby, that’s what I’m so worried about, of anything happening to him.’

Charlotte added that having a baby during the global coronavirus pandemic hasn’t been easy. 

The star asked Dr Sophie for advice on what snacks she could eat now with gestational diabetes as she admitted she used to snack on Galaxy Minstrels. 

Dr Sophie advised Charlotte to ditch the chocolate treat for fruit and vegetables, she also encouraged her to exercise to help control her blood sugar and mental health.

Charlotte sweetly gave her support to any other struggling mothers-to-be or anyone else who has been diagnosed with gestational diabetes.

She said: ‘If any of my fellow preggo birds have just been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, I just want to give you a big snuggle. 

‘I know we’re not allowed to cuddle right now – but come here you! I just want to say, we’ve got this girls, we need to be positive and just rock this gestational diabetes!’

WHAT IS GESTATIONAL DIABETES?

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that affects pregnant women, usually during the second or third trimester.

Women with gestational diabetes do not have diabetes before their pregnancy. It usually goes away after the birth.

It occurs when the hormones produced during pregnancy make it difficult for your body to use insulin properly, putting you at an increased risk of insulin resistance.

Treatment focuses on managing blood sugar levels through diet, exercise and sometimes medication.

Women can significantly reduce their risk of developing gestational diabetes by managing their weight, eating healthily and keeping active.

Figures estimate one in five women will develop gestational diabetes during pregnancy.
