Does anyone know how to find a database of OBGYN's with biologics experience?

I'm about to start Humira...and I'm also trying to get pregnant. I'm 34yrs old and have had a few miscarriages over the years due to Crohns flares (undiagnosed at the time).

Now that I've come to terms with the Humira (!), I need to find an OBGYN with experience of patients using a biologic. I tried calling all of the listed OBGYN clinics in my local area (Fort Myers, Florida) but no luck. Most of the nurses I spoke to hadn't even heard of Humira. I asked my Gastroenterologist, my primary care physician, the MothertoBaby research group and everyone else I can think of. I even emailed the CCF guys, who always ignore my emails.

Does anyone know if there is a national database of OBGYN's that list themselves as being familiar with biologics?

Thank you so much!

I'm in Tampa and have found an OBGYN that I'll accept her experience (Kathleen Brown), but when I lived in Chicago, almost all OBGYN's had experience with Crohns and biologics and pregnancy. Not sure if you're able to fly for a consult, but I had a wonderful team up there.
