Choosing the Best Northern Virginia OB/GYN for Your Pregnancy

Finding the right Northern Virginia OB/GYN that fits you and your pregnancy, is an important factor very early on. You can always change providers, but it’s best if you find the right person from the start or even prior to getting pregnant. So if you’re looking for an obstetrician, check out three of the top practices in the area.


3 Top Northern Virginia OB/GYN Practices


Capital Women’s Care

With 55 locations in the area, Capital Women’s Care makes it easy to find an obstetrician close to home. They have been serving Virginia, DC, and Maryland since 1998 when seven local practices joined together. You’ll find an impressive 250+ physicians, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and certified nurse midwives within their practice. And with the use of their Patient Portal system, you’ll have 24/7 access to write to your provider, access your medical records, and schedule your own appointments. If you want to do some of your own research between visits, the Capital Women’s Care website has so many resources to read through.


Centreville OB/GYN

At this Northern Virginia OB/GYN you’ll find a team of doctors and midwives with access to cutting-edge resources to make sure you’re getting the best care. You’ll receive routine pregnancy care, and they can also accommodate high risk pregnancies if the situation arises. And once your baby has arrived (or even before), they will also provide postpartum depression care. Overall, they strive for comprehensive visits so both providers and patients are well informed and on the same page. The myPrivia app that they use at this practice will also make life a little easier when it comes to communication.


Physicians and Midwives

As technology and medicine advance, the founders of Physicians and Midwives believe that care itself should still be the root of providing quality medical care to women. This Northern Virginia OB/GYN practice specializes in OB/GYN and healthy pregnancy to postpartum services. You’ll receive well-rounded and safe care. On top of their great obstetrics and midwifery care, you’ll also find free pregnancy classes as well as a free pregnancy app through Physicians and Midwives. This practice also has a Patient Portal that can be used for complete ease of care no matter the provider.


No matter which practice you choose (one of these three or any other Northern Virginia OB/GYN), you have to decide what you feel is right for you and your growing baby. Be sure to advocate for yourself and your little one throughout the entire pregnancy. And if at any point you start to become unhappy with the care you’re receiving at the practice you chose, don’t feel like it’s too late to transfer your prenatal care elsewhere. You have options.
