The Gestation is sublime an only process in the life of the woman, therefore it passes for one of the moments most important of its existence where the same one will go to generate a new to be, which will have some of its characteristics and therefore, will have to be taken serious with all the cares that go since the prenatal one, healthful feeding, physical activity and a good sleep. In case that this does not happen, the woman can face some problems of health, amongst them meets it diabetes gestacional.
