Gestational diabetes affects up to one in five pregnancies and can have significant consequences for both mother and baby. There have been great efforts to identify strategies to prevent gestational diabetes during pregnancy. These efforts have been extended to the pre-pregnancy and postpartum periods to address limitations during pregnancy. In this review we explore how diet, exercise and lifestyle modification can be used to prevent gestational diabetes.
