Pregnancy and Thyroid problem


I'm from overseas and I'm currently on temporary assignment here in Orem, Utah. My wife has a history of thyroid problem and could be pregnant now. Just wondering if any of you can recommend a gynae who's familiar with the situation above (or any good gynae) around orem area. Appreciate your help. thanks.

I cant help with finding on OBGYN , however I am 40 weeks pregnant and have a hypothyroid, or had, I have been on medication to normalize my levels throughout my pregnancy and before.
As long as her thyroid levels are closely monitored and medicatins are adjusted accordingly, you dont need a special OBGYN or anything. Good luck!
