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.

 

As a 41 year old Mom-to-be carrying twins, my pregnancy was considered high risk and I was sent to Dr. Traynor because of his expertise as a maternal - fetal specialist. During my 20th week it was discovered that one of the babies had a dangerously slow heart rate. Because of the excellent care and support of Dr. Traynor, both boys were delivered near full term and are thriving today. Dr. Traynor and his staff were truly amazing and I highly recommend his practice.
