Brief Summary:
The purpose of this research study is to find out if watching an educational video about nutrition helps participants learn about how different foods affect their blood sugar and how Gestational Diabetes affects pregnancy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gestational Diabetes Behavioral: Nutritional Video Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
  • Patients diagnosed with gestational diabetes receive standard nutritional counseling at their first high risk clinic visit. All patients agreeing to participate in the study will at this visit fill out a knowledge questionnaire prior to receiving counseling.
  • Patients will be randomized into standard counseling or standard counseling plus educational video using sealed envelopes that have been randomized by a computer generator and labeled for example #1 - #100 based on order enrolled in study. The envelope will have a piece of paper with video or no video
  • At the next High risk clinic visit one week later patients randomized to the educational video will watch the video on a clinic designated computer after being checked in by nursing. They will then fill out the same questionnaire. Patients that are randomized to no video will only refill out the questionnaire
  • English-speaking patients will view the English version of the video, and Spanish-speaking patients will view the Spanish version of the video in either English or the dubbed Spanish version.
  • A Spanish version of the patient hand-out will be provided in an amendment, prior to their use with Spanish- speaking patients.
