LOL at lunch!
I was gobsmacked when I read an article many years later written by a nurse recalling it, to discover that it wasn't until after the War, in the 1950s (I was born in 1950) that the QE hospital in Birmingham that enabled pregnant diabetic women to have live births, Claire. She'd moved from one of the London hospitals and she'd never seen it happen before. All stillbirths or a few hours before that. Very very sobering - and she mentioned my own first consultant in the 1970s when I 'started' - an elderly semi retired teaching Prof at the QE - as one of the doctors instrumental in enabling it to happen. I cried, Claire.
Collectively - we owe him and other pioneers in the field for the world we all have today.
