There is no reason why you cannot have a natural birth. To accomplish this you must keep strict control over your blood sugars. Check yourself as much as necessary. In addition, it will not be an easy but it is doable with dilligence and your doctor's guidance.

Yes. Natural birth is definitely possible for you. But since you are diabetic you are in the "high risk" category. Controlling Blood sugar during pregnancy is difficult. So the most important thing you have to do is to keep a very strict controlled diet that is useful for controlling sugars. Seek more advices from your Gynecologist. Good Luck.

Type 1 diabetes may be dangerous for a mother-to-be, her pregnancy and the child. Problems such as a mother's vision damage and the baby's health risks should not be ignored. Prevent the potential health problems may be the priority.
