7 doctors agree

In brief: Start local; OB, L&D

Step 1 for pregnant women with headache and feeling of being faint, breathless is to immediately call OB provider or go to l&d.
Then additional evaluations/care can be arranged. People in ohio are fortunate to have at least 3 perinatal centers at major teaching hospitals. There are ways for doctors to easily refer patients or to connect with nationally known maternal-fetal medicine subspecialists.
