Dr. James Chu answered

Usually immediately: For most women with gestational dm, pregnancy (with hormonal changes from the placenta) causes the body temporarily to be unable to control blood glucose levels. Thus, the gestational dm immediately resolves after delivery of placenta. There is still high risk for future type 2 dm. For other women, they may have had preexisting pre-diabetes or type 2 dm. This will then not go away after delivery.
