It's been more than 30 years since the play & then the hugely popular movie Steel Magnolias came out. It still continues to be a focal point for women, pregnancy and diabetes. When Stacey's local theater announced their production, she decided to put together this round-table of moms who have type 1. 

You'll hear from: Kerri Sparling, author of Six Until Me & “Balancing Diabetes.” Melissa Lee, Director of Community Relations for Bigfoot Biomedical & Kyrra Richardson, founder & Creative Director of Myabetic

Kerri, Melissa & Kyrra talk about their feelings around Steel Magnolias, their experiences with diabetes during pregnancy and now as they raise their children.
