I personally would just ask your current NP if she normally works with patients during pregnancy.  If not, she should be able to make recommendations regarding other health care providers that she has worked with before.

I’m curious as to the recommendations.  I’m 27, we’ll start TTC in a few months, and I see a PA instead of an MD.  I plan to find an OB/GYN when I AM pregnant, but should should I start looking now?  Thanks for asking this question! 🙂

@Miss Apricot:  Depending on your state/doctor’s office a PA can do everything except deliver the baby.  I saw a PA multiple times throughout my pregnancy; she couldn’t deliver the baby, but it ended up a non-issue since a doctor I had never seen before was on-call when I delivered my baby.  You can always ask your PA what his/her restrictions are, if you want, before looking for a new MD.
