Maternal Transports

What if my uncomplicated pregnancy becomes complicated?

The physicians of Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates routinely accept and care for maternal transports from surrounding community hospitals that require perinatal care.  Either Dr. Traynor or Dr. Won is on call 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for such transports.  At other tertiary referral centers in our area, fellows, residents or hospitalists care for the most complicated patients.  To Dr. Traynor and Dr. Won – this makes NO SENSE.  If you are transported to our care – that is exactly what you will receive – care by us.  We do not use hospitalists to cover our call nor do they deliver our patients.  You will be cared for and delivered by a perinatologist – the way it should be.

How do I know I will be transported to the care of Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates?

Just ask.  In all likelihood – if your obstetrician referred you for your fetal ultrasounds at Diablo Valley Perinatal Associates – your obstetrician will transport you to our care at John Muir Medical Center.

 

After going through IVF we were delighted to find out that we were pregnant with twin girls. Unfortunately, my cervix started to open too early and I had to go on bed rest at 19 weeks. Dr Rosa Won was so wonderful in diagnosing the problem and then managing my case. If she had not found the cervical insufficiency we could have lost the twins. It was a scary time but Dr. Won’s compassion, kindness and medical expertise helped put us at ease. We cannot thank her enough for the great care she gave to us.
