Virtual Discovery Event – The type 1 pregnancy journey

04 Jul 2021


Register Now

Sunday 4th July 10.30 am – 12.00 pm

The type 1 pregnancy journey – Planning families, pregnancy and after baby arrives.

Join JDRF as we look at the pregnancy journey from planning your family, through to managing type 1 while pregnant and when the baby arrives.

We’ll be talking to health care specialists & mothers about their pregnancy journeys; discussing their concerns and experiences of managing type 1 while planning their families, during their pregnancies and with a newborn.

We’ll also be talking to new fathers living with type 1 about how the demands of a new baby have impacted their management.

Full agenda and speakers TBC.

Our first three Virtual Discovery Events were awarded 4.7 out of 5 stars*.

“These virtual discovery events are terrific, I have such fun, love the speakers, the engagement, and I have never felt so close to the type 1 community at large.”

JDRF supporter, Andy from Edinburgh living with T1D for 15 years
