Understanding Gestational Diabetes DVD

The Understanding Gestational Diabetes DVD is a multilingual resource made for women whose first language is not English. The DVD explains to women and their families how to manage gestational diabetes and what to do once the baby is born. In this documentary-style film, women who have had this condition during pregnancy talk positively about their experiences. It is intended that this DVD will give viewers a better understanding of gestational diabetes. 

This two disc DVD includes the option of selecting from 11 different languages:

  • Disc one includes updated information in English and five additional languages including Bengali, Farsi, Khmer, Punjabi and Urdu.
  • Disc two includes the pre-existing Understanding Gestational Diabetes DVD in Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, Turkish and Vietnamese.
