Today on Mamabetes we are excited to welcome Simone Wright, a registered midwife and woman living with Type 1 Diabetes, as we discuss the who, what, whens and whys of birthing teams. Simone has just completed her graduate year of midwifery and has been present to welcome a number of little babes into the world. Today we hope to give some insight into those usually present at a birth and how this differs depending on the type of birth you have, how different professionals may be able to aid in the achievement of your birth plan, as well as those you may need to consider having in your team as you give birth with Type 1 Diabetes.
