Thanks for posting your query.

For control of diabetes during pregnancy, consult your Obstetrician and Diabetologist (endocrinologist).

There is no evidence based research on effectiveness of acupuncture in management of Diabetes during pregnancy. No data regarding safety is available.

More ever, as I practice allopathy, I can not give you specific suggestions on acupuncture therapy.

I am sorry, as I am not able to help you provide the guidance on this. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
