The project was wonderful – Kathleen Sedante
A screening at her local health centre in the Philippines revealed that Kathleen Sedante had gestational diabetes. She describes what happened next:
I left Dr Yao’s clinic at Pasig City General Hospital feeling anxious about being tested positive for GDM. This was my sixth pregnancy and I was concerned about having complications. In the past, I also had high-risk pregnancies, but I simply went to a hospital for a check-up. I gave birth without much difficulty.
This time, it could be a different story.
The project was wonderful. I received expert advice and explanations from doctors and health workers throughout my pregnancy. It also helped me a lot that the cost of services was reduced. I believe the GDM Project benefits babies and mothers, not only during pregnancy but even beyond childbirth.
Kathleen was one of thousands of women who benefitted from the project Accessing Gestational Diabetes Care, WDF16-1349.
