1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Gestational diabetes is associated with increased risk of neonatal hypoglycaemia. Antenatal expressed breast milk (EBM) is recommended to prevent hypoglycaemia however there is limited evidence for this practice. We aim explore this association to find out whether antenatal EBM reduces the risk of hypoglycaemia in babies born to mothers with GDM.
