Health Care Providers During Pregnancy

When you become pregnant, finding a health care professional that works closely with you and shares in decision-making is important.

Special Concerns

Occasionally, women will need special care while pregnant. This could be due to a health issue or problems experienced during a previous pregnancy. In this case, your care team will expand to include certain specialists, such as an obstetrician (OB/Gyn), maternal-fetal medicine, neonatology and/or a pediatrician.  Your primary care provider (midwife or GP) will arrange further consultation or referral as needed.
