Diabetes is a complication for 7 to 14 percent of pregnant women. Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center’s Sweet Success Program has been a California Diabetes and Pregnancy Program (CDAPP) affiliate for more than 20 years.

Our program is comprised of an experienced team of healthcare professionals. We work with pregnant women with diabetes (Type 1 or 2) or gestational diabetes, helping them manage their condition and improve their pregnancy outcomes.
