Hi Katrina! I am 32 weeks pregnant at the moment and I myself refused the glucose tolerance test.
Especially being a naturopath, I just couldn’t justify exposing my poor little baby to 75g of sugar in one hit, let alone the other cringe worthy ingredients!
I was luckier in most that my midwife did not enforce the test – I instead offered to take my own blood sugars 4x daily for a week to see how I was tracking, which all turned out fine.
Thank you for continuing to help women question the standard medical procedures and tests, and instead making an informed choice for their own unique circumstances and their babies. XX
