In brief: High risk Doctor
This is a really good question.
If you have diabetes that requires a pump, you should be seeing a maternal-fetal medicine doctor (also called a perinatologist or a high risk pregnancy doctor). You are at higher risk for certain problem in your pregnancy. In addition, the goals for pregnancy and blood sugars are different, so an mfm should be managing.
