Gestational diabetes

My baby sugar level is normal and I’m very happy. However, how do I know that I am clear of gestational diabetes after giving birth? How do I check? What’s your experience? :)

Ur doctor will arrange for blood test around 6 to 8 weeks after delivery to check if ur blood glucose level returns to normal or not. Breastfeeding helps to regulate ur blood glucose level too. If want to self-check, u can buy glucometer and needles to test for glucose level through finger prick.
