The National Pregnancy in Diabetes (NPID) audit measures the quality of antenatal care and pregnancy outcomes for women with pre-gestational diabetes.

This is the first year that a Quality Improvement Collaborative (QIC) has been incorporated into the NPID programme for 2018/19 with the aim of focusing on improvement activity.

Some of the key findings include:

  • Overall 7 out of 8 women were not well prepared for pregnancy
  • There has been an increase in the rate of admissions with hypoglycaemia for women with type 1 diabetes
  • Almost one in two babies had complications related to maternal diabetes which is mostly the result of large for gestational age (LGA) babies
  • Admissions to neonatal units are more common than in the general population.
