Moving while pregnant?

I should start off by saying I'm not pregnant yet but we are trying. We just received orders for transfer. I'm trying to find out how you make plans to see an OB/GYN in your new location before you move?

Say you move between appointments and will need to be seen for a monthly visit once you get there. Do you have to go see a new PCP and then get a referral to an OB/GYN, or can my current OB/GYN refer me to a new OB out of state?

I'm currently seeing an OB/GYN because I miscarried last month.

TIA!

  • Once you are in-processed, you will be assigned a new PCM (assuming you are on Tricare Prime). Make an appointment with the new PCM, who will then give you a referral to a new OB.

  • We PCSed when I was about 9 weeks pregnant. As soon as I found out I was pregnant I called an OB and set up an appointment for shortly after our arrival. I was high risk so it was important that I not have a gap in care.

  • Thank you ladies so much for your help. As you can see in my siggy, I am in fact pregnant so as long as this one sticks, I'll be calling an OB before I move to get an appointment setup.
