NEED HELP: First time pregnant with Crohn's, looking for great OBGYN

Hello!
I am in search of a great OBGYN in the Chicagoland area that has some experience dealing with high risk pregnancies and preferably Crohn's disease. I have Crohn's and just want to find a doctor that is knowledgeable about what is best for me and my baby throughout the pregnancy. I live in Elk Grove Village so I am looking for a doctor that is in the suburbs relatively near me (Schaumburg, Elmhurst, Arlington Heights etc.)! Thanks in advance for your help!

Sorry I don't know of a good OBGYN anywhere and don't live in that area but I do know that it's extremely important to have a really good GI during that time so your Crohn's can be properly treated/managed during pregnancy so both you and your baby can stay healthy. Do you have a good GI?

Welcome to the forum Jan33, sorry for the late reply and multiple thread moves.
