FOX4: Saint Luke's doctors fighting misconception that women with Type 1 diabetes can’t have children

May 4, 2018

It's a misconception doctors at Saint Luke's Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists are fighting for women with Type 1 diabetes hoping to become mothers, and it might just give you some hope.  

Natalie Hughes always knew she wanted to become a mother and wasn't going to let her Type 1 Diabetes stand in the way of that. "They take care of all of it. I didn`t want to have to go to 10 doctors. I wanted to go to one place that would do all of it, and that`s exactly what they did," Hughes said.

Dr. Devon Ramaeker, a Saint Luke's Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialists, spoke with FOX4 about women knowing  and understand they need to take care of the condition and team up with doctors to help them conceive and monitor them during their pregnancy.
